Quilted Pillows

Last winter I made several pillows for friends. Turns out quilting/sewing in small sizes is a lot more fun and a lot less time consuming! This was also my first time trying improvisational piecing - and I loved it! I can spend so much time planning a quilt out, and doubting my decisions, but with improv you just have to go with the flow. I also incorporated lettering into the quilting, because I love putting quotes on things. My favorite: "Just think lovely, wonderful thoughts" - thanks J.M. Barrie (Peter Pan).
