Pillow Talk

I finished my pillow or cushion or whatever you want to call it.  It is double sided.
I am SO pleased with this one.  I love the colours and the white.  I have hand quilted both sides.
On the round and round side it is mostly machine quilted but I hand quilted a heart on it.

I hand quilted around the white triangles.  It does take longer but with a little project like this it is doable and worth it.
I also hand quilted on the corner stones.
I am so pleased with it and think it is one of the best things I have made.  I love the pinwheel side.  I want to do more sewing with bright colours.  The cushion cover has a zip closure which I like as I think it gives a more square cushion compared to an envelope back.  At least it does compared to my envelope backs!
