WIP Wednesday

I've been getting a lot done lately, and it feels so good!  I had lots of projects that were half way there, so the focus has been to get them further along.  My first project was my hand appliqued pillow top, I finally finished into a huge 24" x 24" pillow for my bed.  I love it so much.
This is from the Sarah Fielke class I watched on Craftsy.  I can't recommend it enough!!
I put this gorgeous Anna Maria Horner fabric on the back, it has so many colors in it, love love it.  It looks great on my bed.  Also, it is really big, so it'll get lots of use!

The next project is the Spin Cycle quilt pattern.  This quilt will be for one of my Etsy customers.  She previously had me make this quilt for her daughter, and has asked me to make one for her other daughter.  Her requirements were "bright and fun"  
I still need to add one more border, but I got pretty far on it, so I'm happy.

What great projects! Your pillow turned out really well - I've seen so many pretty ones from that class it's quite tempting.

You have some great projects there. I especially love the pillow. Craftsy classes are really great, I've taken one and loved it also.

Your patience amazes me. I've always wanted to try quilting but I can't sit still that long so I'm always super impressed when I meet people who do. Beautiful project!

Your pillow is so beautiful! Was it your idea to use a bias stripe for the flower stems? I love the look! Your Spin Cycle quilt in the post above is also lovely!
