Mod Mosaic Quilted Pillow

You might remember this block from a previous post. I used Elizabeth Hartman's mod mosaic concept to make my blocks for the back of Eric's quilt. I made an extra block and decided to make it into a quilted pillow. I did straight line quilting in the Medium Gray sections of the block. Then I surrounded the block with  the same green (Kona Solid in Cactus, I think) as I used to surround the blocks for the quilt back. I used a light bluey-gray for the outer boarder and did some straight light quilting to finish it off.
I love the look of pebbled quilting... maybe it reminds me of the beach in my neighbourhood.  This is the first project I have made with pebbling and I think it turned out pretty great. In the top right corner of the pebbled section, I quilted in a heart instead of a circle. How dorky :)

I used a blue on blue polka dot fabric and Tula Pink's Prince Charming for the back as this is one of my favourite fabrics. The dreamlike images and hidden treasures made Prince Charming an ideal choice for the back of the quilt I made for my parents.
