Long time ago I made The Colourful Quilt and it is on one of the walls in the livingroom ever since. One of our neighbours asked me once if he could buy it, but of course I said no.
This weekend he has a housewarming party and I had to come up with an idea for a gift: not a complete quilt , but a pillow inspired by the quilt.
It had been a while since I practised sharp points, but it worked out just fine.
The front is quilted with freehand swirls.
The back is a red cotton fabric, the same as the binding. It is a very thick, but soft pillow.
The only thing I’m not completely happy about is the binding; I think it should have been a bit less wide.
The pattern is a New York Beauty block from EQ8, which I have changed a bit, and I’ve added the bleu star in the center.
