Southwest Motif Throw Pillows

I pieced and quilted some coverings for six throw pillows using Southwest motifs I gleaned from the internet:

I used hand dyed fabrics from Cherrywood Fabrics with a Kona Cotton gray background fabric. I had to add a batik here and there:

I quilted the tops using my Janome 8900 sewing machine with the AccuFeed foot which is like a walking foot, but it is built in on the Janome. I used a variegated, brownish King Tut thread by Superior Threads. Here are some closeups of the quilting:

The pillows are about twenty inches on each side.
