Feather Pillow - Finished




The feather pillow - it is finished ready to be gifted to Miss B.  I wanted to convey the impression of feathers on sand, so I used an oyster shot cotton from Spotlight as the background.  There is a tiny inner border of denim shot cotton  and then the outer border is another AMH Skipping Stones fabric - Palm Fern in Bisque, I loved the soft sandy colourway of this, unfortunately it is not a colour that photographs well, so it is really hard to see the detail of the print.  Straight line quilting on the border and, hand quilting with a variegated thread around the feathers finish the front.  I used  an exposed zip on the backing which is made from another favourite AMH feather print  of which I had just enough fabric for.  Binding from Tula Pink completed this pillow.

That has been enough procraftinating from me, back to working on Mum's quilt now.
