This is a small pillow I made for Quilt Shop Gal June challenge.
I used the directions in Option 1 by Diane Gaudynski.
It was great fun.

LLQG 2015 challenge quilt

This year's challenge quilt was to place three, 1/4 yd fabrics in a paper bag and use the fabrics.
I found this to be a huge challenge because the fabrics were not in my usual colors.
I mean really, how was I going to use green and orange?
I had wanted to make a quilt with arrows and feathers
and thought that would work with unusual fabrics.
You can see two of the fabrics in the feather in the bottom left.
The green and orange is in the feathers of the big arrows.
The feathers in the middle used embroidery stitches on my Janome Horizon.
Four of the feathers used raw edge fused fabric that I FMQ.
I like the FMQ loops and arrows on the border.
