I just finshed my first quilted pillow with the pillow talk swap, I'm wasn't sure about the fabrics and learned a lesson in (color) value with this one. So matching shades is really important in my final composition. It feels good to finish something, I had a challenging day at work and didn't know how my client may have felt after leaving the room.

I think often about my work and a desire to see if an intervention is effective or not. Luckily with sewing, something is finished, and hopefully I brought some joy to my recipient. In this case, I don't know the person, but I thought alot about the project.

I'm still working at accepting and embracing imperfection, and this pillow is certainly an example of that. Luckily in the modern quilting world, wonkiness is an acceptable thing! Shouldn't all like be this way??
