Off to the City / #slmqg

Tonight I'm attending my first SLMQG.  I'll admit that I'm a bit terrified nervous about it but hopefully all goes well.  It'll be a different experience than my other quilt club group, that's for sure!
 
   As part of the meeting tonight there is a pillow cover swap.
Being the newbie I have no idea how my pillow will be received but fingers crossed that someone will like it.

After a quick brainstorm and a failed first attempt with another design I went with this color palette design.  It turned out just as I had hoped, maybe even a little better.  

Organic quilting was the order of the day as my straight line quilting was horrendous at 1am.  But I like it enough to think that I need to do it on a big quilt someday.
And for the back...
  A simple envelope enclosure and some mustaches!
Surely someone will like it, huh?!

I've no doubt you won't be bringing this pillow home with you...it's wonderful! Hope you had a great time :o) I've never been to a quild meeting...I go back and forth as to whether or not I'd like to join one. We have a small handful of them here where I live, but none of them are what we would call modern. Maybe one day I'll dive in and give one of them a try.

this pillow cover is awesome! the simple randomly placed solids on the front are perfect with the mustaches on the back. Surely someone was thrilled to have it! You should hop over and link this up at Needle and Thread Thursday- my new link party for quilting/sewing. It is open through today.
