This is the fabrics I pulled for the Project Quilting - Season 4 Challenge - Square-in-a-Square. And I had the pattern already in mind to use - just a few adjustments and notes and I was ready to cut and stitch away!
To break up the square blocks and add more texture and flow, I used an organic swirling FMQ using a light blue thread - Quilter's Pro line from Connecting Threads for the top thread and their regular cotton thread for the bottom.
I decided to make this into a pillow and this is the first time I have used a binding finish on a pillow. I really like how this looks.
And I made the flap back so the pillow form can be removed for washing. Yes that is the quilt that this 16 inch pillow will go with - I am FMQing like crazy as the quilt is for another competition.
And the front of the pillow - with the quilt it will go with. Fabric line is Summer Breeze II - Moda and the pretty yellow floral pillow backing and the wide outer border of the quilt is from Summer Breeze (first collection). My French Cottage quilt for ME!!
