A finish!

Remember how I redid the centre block of my Marcelle Quilt?
Well I decided to reuse the original centre block.

This is the completed pillow case - I just used the whole centre block and decided not to add a border for fear of making the pillow way too big.
I did a simple stitch in the ditch quilting around all of the triangular pieces.

There she sits, on the couch but I think I will need to make a proper pillow insert so that it gets into the corners and has less bulk around the middle (oh she sounds like me).
I'm happy with it and feel good for not wasting such beautiful fabrics.
