One of my favorite craft books at the moment is Pillow Pop.
I have previously made a pillow from it – Sea Spray. When the brown bag challenge came up in our guild, and I pulled these two fabrics, I decided I would make another one from the book.
You can check out the rest of the challenge rules here. The is” The Metro” pillow pattern. I love how it turned out. I still think this bicycle fabric is fabulous.
I did some straight line quilting in a triangular pattern in each quarter. I used chalk to mark the diagonals and then the center lines as a guide, and then sewed 1″ lines using my walking foot and guide (to ensure the 1″ distance).
I also decided to try out some variegated thread in blue tones. I really liked it and will be using it again on some future projects. You can see the color changes a little more clearly here.
One final view of the pillow, in use, in our backyard. It is a lovely fall day here, so a perfect opportunity for some photos.
This month is Craft book month @ Craftbuds.com, where they are running a link up when you post about your favorite craft book and project from that book.
