It seems great minds were thinking alike this weekend. Earlier, purpleone posted about the two pillows that she made for her Vespa-riding significant other:


Indeed, yesterday I also made two pillows for my Vespa-riding husband using the same fabric. Behold:

They're each 16 inches square and I did an envelope back with this great loose weave fabric my husband found in a remnant bin at the fabric store:

It was my first time doing piping which I discovered was kind of a pain in the ass. However, my sewing machine's zipper/piping foot is my new favorite toy.

These were a "thank you" present for my husband for helping me choose fabrics for a wedding quilt I'm making for friends. I needed 28 contrasting patterns and prints. He possesses an amazing eye for color and was able to pull them all together in under 90 minutes. If it has been up to just me, I'd still be standing there ... probably in tears.

These are so great!  I've been wanting to try my hand at piping...  Yours looks fantastic!
