I finally finished my retro pillow. I blogged about it here if you would like to see all the requirements. Nothing like finishing at the last minute! Better almost late than never I suppose.
I have really enjoyed this challenge. Mostly because it was a challenge. I have never tried reverse applique nor have I ever done any machine quilting. I had never even made a simple envelope opening for a pillow. I did all of these on this one pillow.
I am not sure if I love reverse applique. If can get my satin stitch down so I don't have to leave the edges raw I think I would love it. For now they were left raw.
I like the way the final pillow turned out. It matches my brown leather couches great. It is HUGE! The requirements were for a 20x20 inch pillow. I wanted this to recover my old couch pillows. I can stuff two of my old pillows in this one.
I have about 6 half finished pillows that didn't turn out. I will be able to fix them I think. They just didn't seem right for the challenge. So some time in the future we may have a pillow week so I can show you all the pillows that didn't make the cut.
Thank you Rikka and Karen for inviting me into your challenge I had a lot of fun!
Voting for the Retro Pillow is now open. If you like my Pillow I would love it if you took a minute to vote for it.
Thanks for hangin' out.
