WIP Quilt and Finished Pillow

I have the quilting bug, and having finished the first baby quilt, I am now working on a second. I bought this fabulous fabric by Anna Maria Horner at Patchwork on Central when we were in Melbourne a few weeks ago.

I love it so much, it is going to be the centrepiece of the nursery. Before emabarking on the quilt a couple of weeks ago, I quilted a pillow, to check out the effect. Finally I sewed it all together into pillow like form, and voila, here it is:

I have started the hand sewing of the quilt, which before I got to that stage, looked like this:

I am hoping it won't take too long to finish, as I have a stack of things I want to make over the next few months!
