In the meantime, I did manage to make a pillow for Jill's new house. She moved in to her first house a few weeks ago. We went fabric shopping last weekend, and I have orders for several sets of curtains, as well as a full- and half- apron. Long before she moved in, I purchased half yards of the awesome Echino camera fabric.
Jill is an awesome photgrapher, and has recently started working towards professional status. She's had a few paying gigs, and is trying to branch out with her most beloved hobby. I knew she would dig the camera fabric, so I made her a pillow using the gold version, along with Kona scraps from my quilt.
I think this is a great way to use the camera fabric, and it leaves me with a ton of fabric for another project. I used the same layout for the back of the pillow, a gold zipper, and used bamboo fiberfil for the stuffing (it needs more, though; I ran out).
I hope Jill enjoys her new pillow, and her new house!
