I had a chance to make a few more pillows in the Aqua applique collection. I started with Beach and have now added Lake and Waves. I wanted to use the waves in my Float logo but was trying to figure out how to draw them in the necessary scale when mom looked over at the Float sign I have in my sewing room and said, heh, we can trace those. And, she was right. They were the perfect size. I also am now using a technique taught to me by Marguerite. I was showing her how my pillow stuffing looked lumpy when I used thinner fabric. She said she puts a piece of batting under the fabric and that helps. It sure does!
