MQG Madrona Road Challenge

I'm back sewing again and man is it fun!  Becoming a mother of two has been wonderful, but tiring. There is also that nagging concern that I'm not paying enough attention to my older child but it is quality that is important, not quantity, right?

Finished pillows

In progress

Anyway, here is a recent finish. I made these two pillows for the Modern Quilt Guild Winter 2012 Challenge. One will be swapped because my MQG chapter (Front Range Modern Quilt Guild) also decided to do this challenge as a pillow swap. The other one I will keep. They will look perfect in our guest room/office.

I came up with the design, although it is pretty much a quarter log cabin at heart. I branched out a little with my quilting and although it certainly could be done better, I'm pretty happy with the results. Most of all, I hope the person who receives it enjoys it too!

Cute! I still have to finish mine, but it's all cut and ready to be sewn up.

But like you, it's hard to find the time with two kids! They just suck all the energy out of me.
