Modern She Made Pillow Complete

This weekend I was determined to finish my Modern She Made Swap item.  Work is going to be very busy, and I will be traveling the week before we need to ship everything out, so I wanted to make sure I finished everything now before things got so crazy.
I finished piecing the top and then machine quilted it before  piecing the pillow together.  The rules for this swap state that you must have a circle somewhere on your quilt.  There are a couple of circles in the scraps of fabrics that I fussy cut so that you could see the full circles.  I also quilted the large grey side of the pillow with half circle echo quilting.
Here is the completed pillow.  I love how it turned out!  I really hope my partner likes it.  If she doesn't, I'd be happy to keep this.
Here's a side view of the back.  I did an envelope closure since I'm not that great with zippers.  The label is hidden under the flap in the back.


  1. This came out beautifully!!! You have a very lucky partner: )

  2. I love the envelope closure, gives it a very classic look. :)

  3. Awesome pillow! Someone is very lucky to receive this. :)
