Echino love

I developed a weakness for Echino Decoro awhile back. i thought the picture frames would make an excellent whole cloth pillow.
Echino Decoro Pillow
i used a FQ of the black frames and handquilted with white #8 DMC perle cotton. I used my favorite faux piped binding tutorial and some kona and connecting threads solids.
Echino Decoro Pillow back
i kept it simple with an envelope back out of white connecting threads solid. the pillow is 16" square. it's not fancy but it's one of my favorites.
DMC Perle Cotton
i bought a bunch more perle cotton from 123stitch. i'm really enjoying handquilting--much more than i ever thought i would. i'd like to do some more wholecloth quilting soon.
