                             It is very difficult to photograph pillows, so hence the multiple pictures.
Ruth, one of my Wednesday students said"I don't repeat gossip so sit down and listen carefully."
                            Not only did I think this was hilarious, but I knew it belonged on a quilt.
                         That was not going to happen soon, but a pillow was within my reach.
      I used 1/4 th inch bias binding made with a Clover tool. Basting glue then sewn with FMQ
            to secure to top fabric. Then the entire pillow was FMQ to give texture and body.
                   I really love the result, and will probably do again with better letter placement.

Happy New Year !!!!!

First project for 2014 pattern and instructions in Feb 2014 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.
Would have loved to hand piece hearts as called for but machine applique got the job DONE.
Wishing you much love in the new year.
