Pillow Talk Swapped

Today is mail day for PTS8! I finished the pillow late last night. Some nifty quilting, FMF binding and a cute little label:) Here is a close up of the quilted top! I wanted to add a little texture and accent the swirling middle block.

Here is my little label made from a green seeds scrap. I love when my swap pieces have labels so I always try to make one. I can only show you half; you can’t see the “to” until she gets it!! I really wanted to use that print for the binding, but all I had was part of a fat quarter:( I made it work, but I used every inch I had! I could only miter 3 seams; one is just straight. But I think this fabric really completes the pillow so it was worth it!

This morning, I decided to add some goodies to the package:) Everyone loves extras!! I chose some fun fat quarters! I just got the top print from The Little General. It’s very fresh and art deco-ish; I’m loving it! The Little General is formerly Karen Gray’s shop. Gina is the new owner and it’s just lovely. It’s bright, cheery and full of fabric that I LOVE!! Karen is missed though:)

I decided to whip up a little pouch. I only had a 7″ zipper on hand so whatever I did, I needed to use that:) My secret partner had put Melody Miller typewriters in her favorites and I had a scrap half a typewriter. I think it turned out quite well!

Fingers crossed that the USPS will safely deliver my little package! I cannot wait to hear what she thinks!!
