This latest quilt is being shipped to my customer today, but I couldn't wait to share it with everyone. I did a couple of different things with this quilt that worked out really great. First, I used different fabrics for framing the blocks and for the backing. The blocks are framed with a creamy white fabric with multicolor dots that picked up the different colors in the garments. The back is a similar print with a blue background and multicolor dots. I also did a different layout with the appliqued blocks at the center of the quilt. I think it turned out kinda cute, don't you?

I had some clothing squares left over after I finished the quilt so I made the customer a little pillow cover that will go on a travel size pillow. I just sewed the squares together and framed everything with the blue dot fabric. It has an envelope back for easy pillow insertion and it's fully washable, just like the quilt.

I had a lot of fun with this new layout and pillow cover. I can't wait to start on the next one.
