ok--I can see now that I have been doing the whip stitch wrong!!  My backs look horrid...and I am not quilting all the way through the back some of the times since I am using a running stitch to make the quilting go faster...is the back critical?  I am making a purse and plan on lining it anyway so that no harm will be done to the stitching...I will do better next round!

I love your beadwork minus!!!

I think if you quilt through to the back you would get more "definition" in the quilting parts....I'm planning on making a purse/totebag as well and will cover all the backs with some lining.  I'd like to add some little pockets inside on the lining part too...

That's it always - if you go all the way through you get more of a textured result - just through the top and it will probably remain pretty flat which may or may not be the look you're going for.

altered - love the button and beads - great work!

Quilt around the words and the odd stitch underneath words if needed.

Great work so far. Love the buton and beads.

hmmm--when I post pics tonight, I will be sure to show the backs...I think the whip stitching is the worst part but it looks ok on the front...thanks for the help...I am glad that I have lots of scraps to keep trying...I have been sewing them together as I go so I have an idea of what size I need to make...

DOH!!  it never occured to me to just write the words with a fabric marker.  I picked up some wonderful fabric markers a few years ago and they would certainly help on a project I'm dreaming up.

I would love to swap ATC size "pillows" with my fellow teesha moore peeps.

Here is what I have sewn together so far...



Close-up of front whip stitching...



Really bad job of whipstitching in the back...I did not go all the way through as I am not familiar with this stitch!


Ugly backs--I guess I must be going through enough because the fronts look puffy to me! Cheesy

They look great all together, and if you are making a lined bag, you are not even going to see that side.
Now a reversable bag, that would be a differant story...

alwaysinmyroom:  I love the black and white (and some color in the one pillow) color thing you have going on with the different colored backs. 

You are not doing anything wrong.  your whipstitching is just fine, your quilting looks great too.  I would possibly add some more color in with the black and white  but that's just me.  The great thing about these pillows are there is no right or wrong way to do these things.  The backs are not supposed to be all nice and pretty, it's really the front that matters.
