Sweet dreams

The pillowcase quilt is now finished. It is 23 inches square. I quite enjoyed doing the free motion machine quilting this time. I must be getting better as I didn’t clench my teeth all the time 🙂 When I discovered as I was almost finished that I had forgotten to put the feed dogs down I was even more impressed with the results 🙂

I got a lot of ideas for the quilt from Jennie Rayment’s book Creative Tucks and Texture for Quilters and Embroiderers. Be warned though these types of quilts do take a lot of fabric.

Here’s the finished quilt:

And here’s the back to show off my quilting!

And a few close ups. I used the bow from the embroidery for the quilting design on the top border.
