I made a pillow to practice my free motion quilting and to use up some fabrics that have been in my stash for quite a long time. I love this Hope Chest block from A Quilting Life. I decided that a pillow is small enough for me to practice and I can complete the project in a short amount of time.
I decided on an orange peel design for my quilting pattern. I hope I've said the correct name for the quilting. I pieced together some large scraps of batting and sprayed the back of the quilt block to lay the batting onto before I started quilting. It was small so pinning wasn't really necessary but I wanted to keep the three layers from shifting as I quilt. You can purchase the Hope Chest pattern from A Quilting Life here.
