My latest project is a pillow for my partner in the Pillow Talk Swap 7. I've been admiring the pillows coming from this group for quite some time and was able to get in on the fun this round.
My pillow is a pattern called Wheel of Fortune which was published in the Kansas City Star in the 1930's. I love that the newspaper had a free weekly quilt pattern!
My partner likes blues, greys, greens and burgundy reds so I put this together. I used some of my favorite Japanese fabrics and text prints for this one. I'm not usually drawn to this color combo but I was surprised to realize it matches the colors in my living/dining room.
I'm not sure yet how I will quilt it but since taking these photos, I have added the border in a dark charcoal which sets off the block nicely.
