Nancy of Do Small Things with Love gave her satin stitched bird a permanent home on this pillow. Of her thread design, she explains:
I used 7 different shades of blue and just made sure that the same color wasn’t touching another patch of it.
Quilters use similar design tactics to create interesting patchwork. Notice each border strip has a different blue, with two solid and two prints. Nicely done!
