So when I was 'stalking' my partner, it turned out that she and I have very similar tastes. All of her favorites were ones that I would have made my favorites too. And, her likes were pretty broad, just like mine! So, I knew if I made something I adored, she would probably dig it too.
So.....here's what I came up with...
I'm currently working on my Loulouthi quilt that uses this same pattern.
It's called Curlicue and I re-sized it to make it fit into a 20" x 20" form.
I used a ton of Denyse Schmidt fabric with some Suzuko Koseki prints.
Here's the back. I used a DS Quilts Daisy Mae print (which happens to be one of my favs).
I added a zipper and of course, a little label.
Here's a close up of my quilting. I decided to hand-quilt it.
Yes, Annie (My amish alter ego that makes me hand quilt everything!) took over again!
She kindly suggested that I do a petal / catherdral windows pattern, so I did.
So, what do you think, Partner? Do you love it as much as I do? I hope so!
This is going to be a tough one to give up. Please don't laugh at me if I make one for myself. Okay, you can, just not too loud....
Thanks so much for letting me share another project.
Wonderful pillow! Sunny colours, perfect piecing and lovely quilting (and a great label on the back).ReplyDelete
Your partner is so lucky - you totally deserve to have one of your own - no laughing going on here!ReplyDelete
I love this pillow! I know your partner is going to love it too! I think it's pretty awesome that you have an Amish alter ego. I think I may have to start calling you Annie!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous pillow - love the label and the handstitching too.ReplyDelete
