I am entering one of my pillows (stitched for the 2015 FMQ challenge over at Quiltshopgal) into the Home Machine Quilted Category.
Absolutely love this pillow. The design was inspired by Christina Cameli.

This is stitched with a variegated 50/2 Aurifil thread, the colour changing from a light beige through to a deep rusty-yellow tone. This looks super effective on the olive green background and as one reader commented looks very Australian...this was unintended, however looking at it again, I agree...there is something very Australian about it. Must be the colours of the thread on the background... reminds me of eucalyptus leaves, even though they do not look anything like it.
