Grey Pillow Cover Finish
After piecing this, I was in a quandary. How shall I quilt this piece. I had been practicing some McTavishing on my Vintage Singer 237. Was it time to try it on a "real" project? Guess so.
I did my version of McTavishing in 2 quadrants and alternating squiggly lines in the other 2.
Each quadrant was quilted with a single piece of (top) thread. Except, of course some of it was cut off in the squaring and resizing process. ;).
I also debated about how to finish the pillow cover. When I finished the piecing and took it to show and tell at the Tampa Modern Quilt Guild, I felt it was, well, boring. So, I began to think how to finish it off to have a nice accent. I like to use orange for my accent but I was thinking in another direction on this one.
I found some fabulous green and light grey by Art Gallery Fabrics at my fabulous LQS, Crafty Threads http://www.craftythreads.com/ and decided on a 1/4 inch piping.
That is a shadow in the lower right, oops.
I will take some other pictures soon when it is stuffed with a pillow form. Please leave me a comment to let me know that you have stopped by.
