Project Quilting Season 8-4 brighter the better
First is a big Thank You to Studio Cherie! She gave every person who participated in the third challenge a free downloadable pattern! So awesome! I haven't had a chance to make mine yet but I plan to very soon. Thank you!
The theme this week for Project Quilting is brighter the better. What is brighter than Cherrywood Fabrics, right! I had a few bits left from another project and they seemed perfect to make a bright springtime pillow. I already had a pattern. I found it on Maudie's Cottage Design (I think it was through Craftsy, not positive) but here is a link to her webpage.
I added my little spinning triangles by appliqueing them to the pillow front which I think makes me eligible for the challenge. I didn't actually do any quilting this week!!! (Hey, I have a nasty cold, cut me some slack) I fused them and stitched around the edges.
Almost every year for my birthday we go hang out in antique shops. Not everything in the shops is antique but I love browsing through all the memory inducing items. Usually I end up with a tiny bag of odd scraps of fabric or buttons. I bought this bag of buttons on one of those trips, no they were not $35. I think they were maybe $3. The bright colored button was the reason I bought this bag. I had no idea what I would use it for but I knew someday it would speak to me. It was screaming at me for this project.
I had everything I needed for this project except the zipper. Yes there is a zipper in the back. I love the rainbow colored rickrack on the edge too.
It is just a small decorative pillow, 12" x 16" but it is brightening up my house and putting me in the mood for spring!
Have a Creative Day
