As you know I really enjoy making quilted gifts for friends and family at Christmas time, and this year was no exception. I decided to make a quilted pillow for my sister-in-law, using a photograph that I printed onto an EQ printable sheet, and added a selection of cream and white fabrics, some lace trimming and some vintage buttons (some of these were from her mother's button tin!). The pillow was quilted with Aurifil thread in a variety of designs - straight rows, angular spirals, and free motion twirls and curls. I added one of my labels on the front of this pillow, and used a wide half inch binding that was machined to the front of the pillow and hand stitched to the back...
...and here is the finished result. I used an enclosed zipper on the back, and put a plump feather pillow inside. She was really pleased with this!
