I pieced and quilted some coverings for six throw pillows using Southwest motifs I gleaned from the internet:
I used hand dyed fabrics from Cherrywood Fabrics with a Kona Cotton gray background fabric. I had to add a batik here and there:
I quilted the tops using my Janome 8900 sewing machine with the AccuFeed foot which is like a walking foot, but it is built in on the Janome. I used a variegated, brownish King Tut thread by Superior Threads. Here are some closeups of the quilting:
The pillows are about twenty inches on each side.
Very nice!! I can’t believe you’re in new Mexico now…why the move??
