I finished the zipper paper pieced pillow cover for my friend! Just in time too, her birthday party is tonight.
I tried out the negative space quilting I learned from Jacquie Gering's Creative Quilting with your Walking Foot class through Craftsy. It was fairly straightforward, but with my clunky old machine I decided to outline the letters as well. I'm not sure I like the result, but that's why it's fun to practice new things on gifts for other people!

|Detail of the zipper closure. The lap is folded up. Meow!|
|Side A and Side B. Both patters free from Sewing Under Rainbow.|
And, of course, a stamped label.
|One of my favorite parts. Except I almost always forget and have to add it after I finish!|
I think she'll like it, and it'll make up for the pillow she bought from me that keeps having seams pop open! In my defense they're all handsewn, and I didn't reinforce them or anything. This one should hold up much better!
Linking up at Finish it up Friday with Crazy Mom Quilts!
