Welcome!! 15septemberarts is now Georgia Florida Studio! I am excited about the change. This is a place where I display my work and experiences. I am a self taught quilt maker and painter. I am always exploring new means of expression. Glad that you have stopped by.
I have had this QAYG (quilt as you go) piece started for a long time. I had a basket of scraps that I would dive into from time to time and do a row or two. It really never grew any bigger than about 7-8 inches. I decided I would finish it off with a different technique. MORE McTavishing!!!! on a large neutral border.
Well, when I did the FMQ on the border, it shrank more than the middle, so the middle was kinda, well,,,, puffy...Hmmmm... ok, I will do some stuffing, like trumputo in that part. It worked out fairly well.
I layered the top and the back of the pillow wrong sides together, basted it. then bound it like a quilt. It measures 15" square
