…… And A Pillow Completes The Look

Yay!! I have a finish. TWO finishes.

First finish… a table runner. Or a wall hanging. I put those little triangle hanging tabs on the back. I added a bit of stippling. I was tired and wanted to get it finished so my stippling wasn’t planned out. I just started and kept going until I was done. I didn’t quilt the three triangle sections in the center. Just the triangles all around the edges. I think it is quilted enough. :D

With the leftover fabric I made this pillowcover. Forty-eight 2 1/2″ squares.

I didn’t think it would fit but I forced this huge pillow inside. You should have seen me poking out the corners. I could have used an extra pair of hands.

I lined the front with flannel and the back with muslin. Quilting is all straight lines going around and around ending in the center. I did the quilting on my new sewing machine. I love it!!

The back, using the floral fabric, is envelope style.

Table runner measures 44″ by 27″. Pillowcover measures 18″ by 20″. I will definitely make more pillowcovers.

Well, that does it for me. What all did you finish up this week? Do tell….

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me some comment luv. Really appreciate it.

    Mycreativecorner3, I had some help with those straight lines. My walking foot. Hope you will try making a pillow cover. They are quick to make. And like Connie said, use your leftovers. Scraps too, for a fun look.
