Two more pillow finishes

Managed to get two more throw pillows completed for my sewing room window seat.

The pinwheel is an orphan block that matches pretty well the colors in the room. I did some simple straight-line quilting on this one and just sewed and flipped. It has a simple envelope back.

I finished the yo-yos for the third one about a month ago. On this one, I tried free-motion quilting big loops around the borders. I marked where they were going to be so I wasn't so panicky. I think it turned out pretty well. I NEED to make myself practice free-motion quilting more so I can become more comfortable and proficient. It was on my list of things to overcome this year but I have yet to tackle that beast. :)
