A Pillow Top

I decided I needed a change from cranking out Christmas stockings, so I switched over to a pillow (still a Christmas present). I had embroidered the turtle the other day, so it was quite easy to throw some borders on. My friends, whose present it is, love bright colors and I thought that the turtle fabric was just perfect.

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving, I do love to cook, but I'm really looking forward to a long weekend sewing. I'm hoping to cross off a whole lot of Christmas projects. (I just have to stop to pick-up some batting, I'm running very low.)

I'm linking up with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday! Click on the button to hop on over to see what everyone else is up to today!

  1. Love the turtle! And the turtle batik ties in perfect! What a great Christmas present... hope your long weekend is full of productive sewing!

  2. Hehe... I <3 turtles. And I love how watery the other fabrics feel. (BTW, I am also hoping for a long weekend sewing... fingers crossed.)

  3. The turtle is so cute! I love the watery fabrics you've used.

  4. I love the cute turtle and coral. And the batiks you chose for the border are so perfect! My mom is a huge fan of sea turtles and has made a couple of turtle quilts. She recently got a bernina embroidery machine, I'll have to see if it has any turtle patterns.

  5. Great project! Love that little turtle! Jealous you get to sew all weekend, I wish I could! Thanks for linking up :)

  6. Great pillow, Pat! And that turtle batik is so fun, and a perfect choice!

  7. Your turtle is stunning and I love the batik turtle print that you have used as a border!!
