I meant to have my HST quilt done in time to enter into the Festival of the Half Square Triangles, but that is just not happening. I did however steal some of the hst and make this coordinating pillow cover.
I hand stitched along the edges of the hsts with black pearl cotton. It was my first time doing hand stitching in quite awhile, and my first time ever using pearl cotton. I had been thinking about hand quilting the large hst quilt, but now I don't think that I will. ;)
I added a flange and a one inch border around the edge. I love how it frames the design.
For the back, I used a print from Echo (oh, how I love it!) and burgundy kona cotton. Who would have thought that burgundy could look so good?
Now I just have to pick up a pillow form the right size. Be sure to jump on over to the Festival of Half Square Triangles to see all of the other beautiful things people have been making.
