After I finished making this quilt a few weeks ago, I realized that I had exactly enough blocks leftover to make a big pillow. A really big pillow that I made very slowly.
Deciding to hand quilt the pillow slowed me down quite a bit.
But the big obstacle was adding the zipper. It is amazing how long it took for me to get around to installing the zipper. Finished size: 26" x 26".
The binding is one of my favorite prints ever. It's the black ladder dot print from Chicopee.
In other news, I am continuing the quilt markdowns in my shop. They are now marked 30% off.

Earlier this week I was putting away some fabric and noticed a stack of Out to Sea that has been sitting in my stash for a while. After I made this quilt, I fell in love with the collection and bought a whole bunch of it. Of course I liked it so much that I didn't do anything with it until this week.
I used the baby size of The Betty Quilt pattern. When I wrote the pattern I made the twin size version and have been wanting to make the other two sizes, and I had just enough time to squeeze in the baby quilt this week.
The backing is the dark pink anchors and the binding is my favorite print from the collection. And I made sure to get a few mermaids into the quilt.
I used Quilter's Dream Puff batting for the first time and I really love the texture it gives the finished quilt. It is fluffy, but still feels substantial without being bulky.
Finished size: 42" x 51"
Fabric: Out to Sea by Sarah Jane
Batting: Quilter's Dream Puff

A winner has been chosen, congrats Kirsten! I will be giving away more scraps in the future so watch out for future posts.
