I have made Quilts and pillows for Andy and Gill in Devon before, I am always please when I get a new order from them as its always for something bright and colourful, this latest Pillow is no exception.
They wanted a pillow that Tilly-Rose, now one year old would still be happy to use when she was older.
First I appliqued Tilly-Rose on the top of the pillow then I placed the leaves randomly around, I then machine embroidered the stems and leaves in place. I then had fun cutting and placing flowers and berries which I then free motion machine embroidered on. I micro quilted a tiny loopy loop all over the white background and a figure of eight on the patchwork border. Such a lot of quilting fun.
