Quilted, Bound and a Pillow, Too

I got this quilt back from my LAQ just before I left MI. I tried to get the binding on before I came to FL but only got it about half done so it came with me. The top pic is it finished. The second pic shows the quilting on the front and back. I sent it to my DDIL and it has arrived. My DGD is taking it to school for show and tell. They are reading a book about a patchwork quilt. How nice. I wish she had my Autumn Walk one to take as it is more of a "true" patchwork quilt but I'm glad this one arrived in time for her to take.

I also brought what little fabric I had left from this quilt to FL and just used it to finished a pillow. The red back has seven seams. Good print for hiding them. The pillow is not as lopsided as the pics show. Now I need to get it sent.

I've been looking through my stash here in FL. It is not as extensive as my MI one but has some fabrics I'm looking at through new eyes. Hummmmm.

What a special show-and-tell piece for you DGD - I bet she's proud to have such a lovely quilt to share.

How fun that your quilt is going to school! It might inspire a young quilter out there! It is really beautiful and the pillow adds a special touch.
