Pebbled Sea Glass Pillow

 I finished my Sea Glass pillow this morning and I love it!


I broke open this spool of Magnifico that I have been hoarding. It was the perfect color to blend in with the low volume background and it has a lovely silky sheen.
 

 It took me about an hour to quilt the pebbles. I had decided to leave the sea glass squares unquilted so they would pop. Five minutes into quilting, I quilted through a blue square, and out came the seam ripper. I didn't make that mistake again!


I tried to shove an old trow pillow into the new cover, but it was too big. Out came the seam ripper again so I could remove a few handfuls of stuffing. 
 

The binding is a yummy new stripe that I decided to use on all the small pieces I plan to make for my bedroom- pillows, wall hanging, and table toppers.


The pebbles aren't perfect, but they produced the texture I was going for.

WOW! That quilting is just the ticket! Sew proud of you, Tina. The binding is perfect for those blue and green squares that now seem to be floating on that pebbled neutral background. Hope you don't mind if I share this, with a link back, on my facebook page at http://facebook.com/sewfreshquilts. Congrats on your beautiful finish!

This is beautiful Tina - and especially because you left the sea glass squares unquilted!
