Small finishes

My paper pieced tulip pillow is done. I machine quilted this one, including the modified feather design in the white triangle areas.  I used a stencil to mark the quilting lines and then just stitched slowly along those lines. I'm actually kind of proud of this - a new skill that I've tried out.

Another finish for this week is this pillowcase for my daughter's friend. Those gals just finished a 5 day bicycle ride in Nebraska. I had made my daughter a similar pillowcase for her to take along. So now her friend will have one too.


  1. Great job on the pillow and the quilting!

    Nebraska would be a fun and safe place to ride a bike. Did they ride the back roads? Nebraska drivers are extremely courteous - I like that.

  2. Your quilting is beautiful! Love this pillow. You should be proud.

  3. Pretty pillowcase for the bicycle friend!

  4. Beautiful pillow Sara and what a fun pillow case!
