1. And I'm just in time to mail tomorrow - which is also the last day to mail on time.
Piecing the top went pretty well and I thought about how to quilt the thing for a long long long time before doing it. I ended up quilting in the Heath with yellow, orange, red, blue and green thread. It's simple but I did not wanted the quilting to steal the show.
I also thought about the back for way too long too. I always want the backs to be nearly as pretty as the front and I really love how this one turned out !
I think I kind of did some improv piecing.. if it's not that, I still loved it. Just piecing without worrying about the size was fun and I can see a lot more in a near future :)
There is a zipper in there and you have no idea for how long I fought with it. It's not even perfect yet. I think it took me 3 hours and the sad thing is that I'm not even kidding ! I really wanted the pillow to be reversible and what a bad idea that was !
So that's it for the pillow.. I'm gathering a few things and I'll be ready to send it !
2. I just joined a fabric swap - The Big 10 inch Swap and this round, we're swapping "low volume" fabric. I know, it's a little suprising coming from me (since I mostly use bright fabrics) BUT I've been thinking about this swap for the last week trying to decide if I should join or not and today, I decided I should so I can make a low volume improv quilt (maybe with pops of bright colors - we'll see). Hurry up if you want a spot because it's filling pretty fast !
3. I even managed to finish something else today ! I finally finished my boyfriend's quilt (which is also mine, since we'll be sleeping in the same bed in just a few weeks) and I found out that I started it in september of 2010 (I just went and found a picture in my Flickr photostream to prove it - I didn't know it's been so long..) and it has been quilted since march.. I'm a little ashamed now lol
Anyway, it's done and my boyfriend is happy and picked it up this afternoon so I don't have any picture to prove it, you'll have to believe me.
4. If you know anybody looking for a baby quilt, I have 5 that I would love to sell before I move in a month (and I kind of want to close my Etsy shop too).. let them know :)

Anything you're proud you finished lately ?
