Triceratops Pillow


The triceratops pillow has been finished and is now awaiting packaging ready to be posted off to Australia.

I added a 2" deep denimy blue solid border to take the pillow up to 18" square.  Cross hatch quilting means it should be quite robust for a little boy to use in his adventures  This was the first time I have used masking tape as my guide line - so much easier than measuring and marking all the lines out like I usually do, so I will definitely use this method again.  Bound in sun print chartreuse feathers by Alison Glass, and there is a concealed zipper in the back..

This is also my first finish for my Q3  Finish-along goals.
