I finished this little quilted pillow last week. I started it in a workshop with Mary Lou Hallenbeck in November 2010. Mary Lou demonstrated her technique for appliqueing bias strips in Celtic patterns.

I think the quilting looks nice especially in the right light!

    I love that we can make our own bias tape from our favorite fabric!
