Hey all! How's everybody doing today? Things are busy busy around here as I'll be finishing up school at the beginning of April - finishing forever that is, can I get a woot woot?! I've been doing a little sewing and quilting, but most of what I'm working on can't be shared right now but I can share a gift I made for my friend Caitlin's birthday.
I made this pillow using some prints from Kate Spain's Fandango collection and a wee bit of Kona white. The pillow form itself measures 18x18" and I assembled, quilted, and made the envelope back using similar techniques as those I described in my Not Your Traditional Log Cabin Pillow tutorial. I didn't use a pattern for the front I just figured out the width I needed and then did a little math to create the staggered strips.
I also received a super awesome package in the mail from Aneela this week...
When I found out how much Aneela loved Moda's Hello Betty collection I sent her some of my stash and these fabrics were in the surprise package that she sent me back; aren't they awesome?! The top picture includes some Heather Ross, Munki Munki, Japanese cotton, and I think the floral is a Liberty print (or at least that's what it feels like to me)! The bottom picture shows cuts from Aneela's Sherbet Pips collection and I think yardage (and the rest of the pre-cuts) should be arriving in stores soon. I love absolutely everything that she sent along to me and can't wait to get working with them!
Okay, I have to leave for work in about five minutes and then tonight Alex and I are heading to the aforementioned Caitlin's birthday party - should be a great night! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I'll be back soon!!
