It's been a tough school year work-wise and, now that I've finished testing and there are only 9 more "kid days" of school left, I'm starting to relax a bit. De-stressing and catching up on rest makes a difference in reawakening the creativity, which seems to hibernate at times. So... I started working on two pillow covers.
I was intrigued by the diagonal quilting on the table runner I made for my daughter and wanted to try it for a pillow.... and I like it.
I still like traditional patterns and enlarged this Barrister's Block to 20" to make a large pillow cover. The quilting pattern just came to me out of nowhere...
Once I had it clear in my ole brain, the quilting was easy... just had to pay attention and go slowly.
Monday, a friend and I are going on a road trip to JoAnn's to stock up on stuff we're out of. For me, it's batting, thread, and a couple of 22-24" zippers to finish up these pillow covers. The excursion will include lots of catching up and lunch out!
Wishing you all a lovely Memorial Day!
