I did manage to complete one quilting project in 4 years:
|What a sad, sad little pillow this is|
I made this little pillow as a joke. I worked with a bunch of guys and am pretty short so I came up with the girliest thing I could think of to sit on during watch. I used pink & purple & yellow & a multicolor floral to make a border around an appliqued pink flower. As you can see, I didn't know much about applique and I just stitched around the flower, which is now hanging loose on one petal and frayed around all the others.The backing is an obnoxious fabric--cotton candy pink with swirls of glitter and roses. I love it!
|Ooh, and it has sparkles!|
Somehow it ended up as my daughter's pillow when she moved into a big girl bed. She produces a ton of heat at night and gets sweaty sometimes, so this pillow got washed a LOT. It fell apart one day in the dryer (did you see the big hole in one of the purple patches?), and I found fiberfill all over. I am currently in the process of quilting her a pillowcase that will fit the travel-sized pillow she currently uses.
Besides that, and the two bathroom wall-hangings I have planned, I'd like to quilt a table runner for Thanksgiving. I'd also like to do a series of mini-quilts to use as wall hangings. And finally, I'd like to quilt a bedspread for our master bedroom, though I think that will have to wait until next year :)
