Autumn Quilted Pillow Sham and more...

I am very excited to use this new comfy pillow! I used panel in the middle and then I added the borders. I only had so much of the pretty leaves print and I added the four patches in the corners. It's still wasn't big enough so I added another border. I did some free motion stippling and the pillow sham was a perfect size to practice on my domestic sewing machine. Good job Baby Lock!

Here is the back of the sham. I used quilted fabric that I had from practicing quilting on my frame.
Here is a view of the pieces of the shams if you would like to make one for yourself. You just stitch all around and turn it inside out! I serged all around the pieces to prevent fraying when washing.

I quilted this quilt for my friend Leisa. She made the quilt for her brother's wedding. Aren't those birds so cute!
I laid the quilt on my bed to take a picture! I think it fits very nice, too bad it's not mine! ;) I do have the same panels and the patterns, so it's on my long list of quilts to make!

She used plain muslin for backing! You can really see the quilting!

Have a great day!
