"Reflections" quilted pillow 15"x15"

"Reflections" front
 Number 7 of 12 to make was finished yesterday. Life is speeding by incredibly fast. I have been quite busy with many other things that I need to attend to. Hopefully, I will begin a new pillow soon. I am also beginning to stir inside about painting again.

"Golden Gate" quilted pillow 15"X15"

"Golden Gate" front panel
The other day, I wanted to learn how to work with triangles. I sewed a few squares using four triangles in each. I enjoyed the precision it required for the points to meet. That was fun, but the result was very boring to me. The greatest fun came from slicing the squares and making something more interesting. The red lines reminded me of San Francisco Golden Gate bridge and thus the title. The back panel is below.
