Quilted Pillow, Finished!
To exercise a little mixed-media muscle, I used some of the felted turquoise coating that 's been showing up here and there in my projects lately along with some green velveteen that I've had in my stash for ages as border for the pieced block, and then bound the whole thing with more of the Kaffe Fasset print.
I think I was happier with the block on it's own, or perhaps it would have had a bit more pop If I had used lighter border fabrics...but hey, all in the name of practice, right?
I think it looks right at home there on the sofa!

My "whipping stuff up on a whim" does, in general, have a tendency to work out, but almost never in the way I envision when I start out! File under being flexible and stubborn. And ask me again in 30 years. If our house is still standing, I'll call it a win.
And no, I've never been a professional seamstress, but I've been sewing for practically my whole life. I love that it allows for creative expression AND practicality.
p.s. BSN. File under trying to be practical, cross reference under WHAT was I thinking.
