I am participating in a free-motion quilting pillow challenge. I decided to add a personal challenge within the challenge and use the woven bars block for several pillows.

The personal challenge is to create a free-motion quilting design that helps each woven bar pillow unique. You saw the March(brown and gold woven bar). Here are the April and May entries.
