Postcard Quilt top complete!

I've been working my way through my bin of WIPs and last night I finished my Postcard quilt top! Woo hoo! I started it with a pile of old fashioned type scrap prints that individually I didn't really like but put them together and now I think it looks beautiful. I used Kona Mellon for the boarders and sashing to give it that civil war era look and I think once it's quilted up it will look great and be a nice autumn colored quilt to put out. Or I've even been toying with the idea of hanging it in my big blank wall space in my living room. We'll see! For now I'm just really happy to be making such good progress getting through those WIPs.

for the new mr. and mrs.

Earlier in the week my friend mentioned a little project she needed for another friend's daughter's wedding. (follow that?) anyway, the mother of the bride had an idea of sending the newlyweds off on their red-eye honeymoon flight with personalized travel pillows. It gave me a good excuse to break out my embroidery machine and hamg oit with a dear friend. Despite some computer/sewing machine communication difficulties, we got it done and I think they turned out really cute. Great gift for someone heading out on a big trip!
