Sewing projects

Joanna comes up to spend time with us at least twice a month.  Sometimes when she comes, we do sewing projects for her Home Ec class.  This particular time, she and Emily made pieced pillows.
The previous project was making Quillows, which is a blanket that folds into a pocket and then looks like a pillow.  In the picture below, the pockets were pinned onto the backs of the blanket.  We don't have a picture of the finished projects.
 This is a Dresden Plate quilt top.  It was started early January and completed in April.  It will go to the quilter in May.  It was the hardest thing Janet has ever done, because of the tremendous amount of hand sewing involved in it.  After all the blocks had the Dresden plates appliqued onto them, the rest was really fast to put together.  She has declared she will never do another one like it because it was so much work!
 If you click on the picture below, you can see the light fabric better.  It is not plain white like it looks in the picture above.
The latest project is trying to finish the quilt Jeffrey made back in 2003 and he and Janet hand quilted most of it but it was never completed.
