It's that time again in Flickr-land, time for the ever popular Pillow Talk Swap, round 5.
PTS 5 sneak peek
This is a quickie round without the full compliment of usual cohorts, but quite fun nevertheless. Partners were given out a few weeks ago and I've just finished up my pillow for this round. I hope my partner likes it! My partner is a bit more of a traditional quilter from what I can tell, so I hope that this choice reflects their tastes. I chose to go with english paper-piecing of 60 degree diamonds into these tumbling block shapes. PTS5 peek
The Y chromosomes in my house both liked it but then again, they are always eyeballing things with Escher-esque overtones, so that was no surprise.

Lots of bright colors which my partner seems to prefer and paired with starkly contrasting black and white. I used some of Carolyn Gavin's Spring street line as the border/back and added some gathers to give it more texture.
Off to other parts of the union she goes....where will she surface next?...

Happy Sewing!

Caroline... you amaze me. I don't know where you find the time to do so much quilting. All your projects are so beautiful!

love it!! especially the "Escher-esque overtones!" The gathering on the border is lovely too. How long did it take to paper piece something that size?
