Things I've Been Working On

Here is my whirlygig quilt all quilted and washed! I love the way it turned out and have slept under it the the last few nights.Quilting could be better......I like doing a meander the most, but decided to do an allover flower this time. After I washed it I could see the open areas that I hadn't covered as well as I could have. But, I have never been a perfectionist in my quilting and won't start now. LOL
I had some leftover pieces of Wonderland and made this pillow for my DH. Simple, but fun to make.
Tom is leading a 10 day Airstream Caravan from Washington D.C. to Charleston SC. I am making these pillows for him to give as a way of thanks for going on the caravan. The design is from Meringue Designs. Love her stuff!!!!
It's "Good to Be Green" Fabric and Pattern Giveaway will be later this week. I was ruthless with my sewing room this weekend cleaning it so I have a lot of patterns to giveaway if you are interested.
