Wonky Hippo Quilted Pillow

 Last Friday, I showed what was underneath my needle and I am so thrilled to share the finished project! More just thrilled I started a project and it's finished:)
 It's a matching throw pillow made out of the scraps of a quilt I am working on for Elise. I started it late one night after royally messing up my quilt entry for it was a sad couple of nights afterwards ripping out all my stitches. Anyways, I needed a quick victory and I needed a fun, sort of mindless project (i.e. no seam matching, measuring or exactness)

Here's a close up. I did a quick meander all over with monofilament thread. For the back of the pillow, I finished it off envelope style. So, now back to the machine to requilt my QuiltCon quilt and, I need to finish up the Wonky Hippo quilt before our next guild meeting - it's on a deadline.

Check out where I'm partying today.
