More Handmade Christmas

This was a reading pillow I made for Cousin Zoe.

Detail of quilted hearts:

More detail of quilting. See that stippling around the appliqued heart? It was so easy with my new machine - now I just want to stipple everything! I picked up the free motion skills at a workshop at the local Berry Quilt Shop late last year this was my first real go at using them.

Zoe loved it. She's in year two and is really into the pink hearts and bobbles kind of look. I was really pleased with it how it turned out considering that I made it up as I went along. It's a shame I've got so many crafts I'm interested in - I'm destined to be jack of all trades and master of none.
