P's & Q's

This will be the month of P's and Q's. . . pillows and quilts, that is.

Here is my very first pillow ever.

It has a foundation pieced center, piping, a lapped zipper and is quilted with a crisscross design on the diagonal.

I've stayed away from sewing quilts because they take more time to complete than what I like (or have) but why had I never thought to make quilted pillows before!? They sew up fairly quickly and are very satisfying to make. This month I will be experimenting with different types of quilting techniques on pillows that will then be gifted to very dear boys and girls. Oh, sew fun!
