I know--but seriously, it's really fun.
Big pillow for Baby Pumpkinhead's bed.
These are quilt squares that I scored in a Vintage sheet Sewing Bee. It was Deb's idea [my favorite thing she's ever made]--both to do it and to include me (one really good idea + one really big risk). This was the quilting bee wherein I sewed my first quilt squares the wrong size and make it virtually impossible for anyone to use what I made and in turn received 11 GORGEOUS quilt squares from other lovely quilters. Excellent.
And then I turned it into a body pillow cover, since that's what I do. I framed the squares with bits of old white sheet and backed the pillow cover with some creamy-potato-soup colored polyester.
I hand quilted the edges of the squares then decided I didn't feel like stopping, so I'm trying a sort of Thread Scribbling kind of a thing in the big blank place.
I imagine that you could draw this sort of thing onto fabric and then sew over it, but I'm just sort of drawing with the thread in weird curvy patterns.
I think I should be finished with this one (what is it? Oh--no idea yet. It's three blocks sewn in a row) some time in the spring of 2051.
