    Hello...greetings from Jakarta, Indonesia.
    These are the results of my first chenille experience, inspired by an e-book "crazy for chenille" by author Andrea Clancey. I am new to quilting. :D :D

    Greetings back from California! Very pretty pillows. I have never worked with Chenille. I would think it would jump a bit under the needle yet your pillows show you have nice even diagonal lines. Wow!

    Emma these are great. How difficult is this technique, following Andrea's method? I'm not sure if I could do this without cutting through the fabric in the wrong place. Thanks for showing us you beautiful Christmas Pillows.

    Hi, I am happy to know that I have many new friends of the same interest. Thanks to all of you.
    @ Loretta: I just followed the instructions in the e book, they were easy to follow. @Elisabrat: I used sewing chalk to mark the diagonal lines even. @Sheila Elaine: Yes, to me, cutting through the fabric was the hardest effort. I did not have a rotary slash cutter available here, I used small fabric scissors. In my next experiment, I'll make the diagonal lines width smaller and use different cotton fabrics. Let's all give a try! :D

    hello from Great Britain, lovely pillows, I haven't tried chenille work yet, i don't think i could keep my machine lines straight enough yet. Thanks for posting your pictures.
