Pictures of Chain Linked – Eye Candy

Posted on: January 10th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Pictures!  They are not the greatest, but ….  I will try some outdoor photography this weekend.  The snow is almost all melted already.  A park setting would be nice.

There are actually two pillows, but I did not make the back for the other one yet.  I need another zipper.  This was my first attempt at making a quilted pillow.  Surprisingly, it turned out fine!

This is the back of the quilt.  Or not…  Love the Kona solids!  I ditch quilted between the white and grey and around each coloured square.  Then I quilted a wonky star in each.

 I really have to thank Rita Hodge of +Red Pepper Quilts for inspiring the binding choice.  She makes her quilts with a flattering black and white stripe.  Without her example, I would not have been brave enough to try something with a black background for such a white and bright quilt!

This is the front.  I used a polyester batting.

The kids are out of school tomorrow – again – already….  So, if I get any quilt making done – I may be starting on the backing for the pinwheel quilt.  Good news….  My label fabric I ordered from Spoonflower arrived yesterday!  So I would like to make this backing with one pieced in.

Bye for now!
