First Little Finish for 2013!

Okay, so it is just a little finish. But a finish is a finish and my Pond Pillow is complete!
The front of this pillow was December's Sew Cal Gal FMQ challenge. It will coordinate with my Koi Pond quilt, once that's done.

The back! I found this gilt FQ the other day and just loved the sparkle.

"Antique" mismatched buttons - my husband thinks I'm crazy for intentionally using different buttons, but I love it.
I did work on a few other projects this week. I continued to quilt my Koi Pond quilt.

I love my little fishies.
I also made this little baby quilt top from some old orphan blocks.

All in all it was a productive week.

Color Me Quilty!


  1. Love the pillow! And those fishies are super cute. :-)

  2. I love your pillow Pat! The colors just POP! Which of course you know I just love :*) And those mis-matched buttons with that gilt fabric - genius!

  3. A finish most definitely is a finish and this is a lovely one. The orange thread looks great!

  4. Wow. Your FMQ is incredible! I am so jealous of your skills!

  5. Pat, the pillow turned out beautiful. What a great start to your finishes for the year! I love the feathers! The Koi pond quilt is still looking amazing...can't wait to see more progress!
