Hand Sewn Closure

I'm on a roll, a slowww roll, but at least I'm sewing. Although being in a funk still challenges me, three 24" pillows went fairly quickly. By quickly, I mean three days, which is slowww... For me, hand-sewing is easier than putting in a zipper.

The quilt top in the previous post isn't finished. It needed black for a narrow border and, three fabric stores later, I finally found black woven 100% cotton. It should be easy right? Quilt In A Day was out of stock; Yardage Town has polyester blends -- good ol' Joann's rescued me with a pre-packaged "Quick Cut" of three yards.
