While I wasn't sure what or if I would make anything out of the two test pieces, in the end I decided a pillow would be worth the time!
Here are the two feathers I made using stripes and Kona Khaki. Since I ran out of the solid and just wanted to make something...I decided a simple pillow would work!

And it did! I love the straight line quilting (always) in the Khaki. The feathers I quilted random lines following the feather direction.
Classic envelope closure always works for me. One day I really want to do a hidden zipper. I've heard they are pretty easy!
I am looking forward to a little break from quilting now. A Holiday break! Hopefully I will come back rejuvenated, refreshed, kicking my heels up and ready to start a brand new year with a brand new direction!
