Pillows are super gratifying in that I can have an idea and then have a completed project within 12 hours, even adding a bit of sleep in the middle of working on the pillow
I pulled Alison Glass fabrics that reminded me of the ocean and sand.
I cut strips with my rotary, but no ruler to have them odd shaped and give a little improv natural look to the landscape.
I quilted meandering lines in both areas, using a variegated blue thread on the ocean and a gold Aurifil thread in the sand section
As I stopped for the night, I was not sure how to complete the sky section of Chambray to make it stand out from the ocean. By the time I woke up I had decided on a sun rising (because I'm on the East Coast)
I glued down the rising sun and stitched over it with free motion squiggles. After quilting, with no backing, just batting, I trimmed to a 16" square to fill to a 14" pillow.
And now a finished improv pillow for a beach fan
