I finished my pillow! I have to say that I really enjoyed making this. I felt I had a vision for how this pillow was going to turn out, but sometimes my visions are flops. I kept fretting over the background and whether I should put the dresden off center or not. I am pleased with the overall effect though, and I have high hopes my partner will like this.
For the back of the pillow I used a coordinating print to the background of the front and made a simple envelope closure.
I kept the quilting on this pillow simple with random diagonal lines. It already felt busy, and I didn't want to add more "busy-ness". ;0) The pillow is 20" x 20".
Of course, as I was taking pictures, Josiah thought I wanted to take pictures of him.
Really, how I could I not? Cutest little face ever.
