After Glow

I'm basking in the after glow today and feeling quite pleased with myself.  I finished Flower Star yesterday, front, back quilting, piping and all.

Quilting Detail

Piping detail

And all!  I think I am most excited about the piping.  I've never used piping before.  It was pretty easy to make, and I think it really adds nice detail to a pillow.  I plan to use more of it in other projects.
     I really love this pillow.  It is going to be a part of that really big project I've been hinting about.  I just want to get a little bit further on it before I show you. 
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I luv your pillow Mary!! I agree with you about paper piecing-such a great technique!!!
    I am so happy that I found your blog again-I am a follower now so I can stalk you regulary on Tues, and Fri! LOL!
    Enjoy your weekend as well!

  2. It looks wonderful! I love it. Great pattern for the Reunion fabrics!

  3. This is so cute! Love the Reunion and the piping is fab!

  4. This is gorgeous! I am currently working on a baby quilt with Reunion, and I just love the line! It's just a stacked coins pattern, and I have many of the "coins" left over, so I think I'll need to make myself a pillow or something once I finished!
