My good friend recently purchased a vintage Airstream to restore. It's got all the original goodies in it, and I know she's got big plans, both inside and out.
For her birthday, I got a picture of it, and then went to work on this pillow. I drew it out in a simple line drawing, and then cut out the individual pieces to use as templates. I had way too much fun digging through my scraps for the perfect fabrics. As if I needed more incentive not to throw out anything, ever.
I pieced the ground and the sky out of solid rectangles, and attached the trees and trailer to it one piece at a time. I used a little bit of applique adhesive spray (I think spray baste would work just as well) on the backs of the pieces, and free motion quilted around all the little bits, leaving the edges raw.
She's got four Jack Russell Terriers, and so I knew there needed to be four dogs. One of them does not play well with others, so he got put inside.

I had a blast making it, and I see similar projects in my future. Maybe even a quilt!
