finished pillow

This is the first of 4 - 6 pillows to go in my dining room chairs. It's a little brighter and wilder than I had originally intended, but it's not too terribly bad. The next few pillows will probably be more subdued, especially on the large spiral side.
After I did the spiral itself, I did the surface embellishment the same as the small spirals on the front. I may leave it off the next one, or at least use colors that blend a little more.
The other problem I'll try to avoid in future pillows is that the top and back are both a little bit bigger than they need to be. Here's a situation where you really need negative ease . I worry that with use, this pillow will start to get a little loose and floppy. Should be easy enough to fix on the next one.

Love the pillows!! The swirl was my favorite of the stitches you showed us in class. I also really like the little zip purse further down in your blog.

I wish I could take classes from you. Love the pillows. That spiral is darling and the swirl is great too.

Since I can't take classes from you, is there a book that tells how to do these?

On my blog the other day, you asked how I found you. Believe it or not, it was from goggling "freeform or free form" I forget which! I love freeform knitting and crocheting.

I also am on Ravelry as ChelleC if you happen to be a member over there. I'm in the Freeform group on Ravelry. Chelle
