Class projects

When I take a class, I feel compelled to make a project I started in that class. Because of that compulsion I am feeling stressed to finish those unfinished class projects.

I finished one of those class projects today! Last year I took a needle-turn applique class, using the Hesperides pattern, with Carolyn Friedlander.

I turned the piece into a pillow cover. The fabric I used for appliqué is from stitch in dye in Austin, Texas. I bought it at their booth at QuiltCon 2018.

I’m happy with the result although I’m a little annoyed with the polyester pillow form because I can’t get the corners to fill. If you have recommendations for dealing with this or a pillow maker, please let me know.
