I hope you all had a good weekend. Even though we had 4 boys (all 6 years old) camp over last night, I managed to finish the Road 15 postage stamp pillow. I am so pleased with the finish – most of the squares are lined up, and I love the straight lined quilting.
Details Front: Road 15 mini charms (2.5 x 2.5″) by Sweetwater for Moda + Bella Solids Cotton mini charm; Batting, and lined with Muslin Back: Teal Kona Cotton Back with an invisible zipper enclosure
I am trying these out in my store for the first time, the postage stamp cushions/pillow cover is now available in my Etsy store.
I was so thrilled this week when I found that Janice @ Better of Thread highlighted my Market Tote on her website, after I shared it on her Sew Tuesday link up. I hope you go over and check out the link up, its lots of fun.
Over the weekend, I finished the two postage stamp pillows that were blogged here and here (check out these blogs for close up shots and fabric used). I love how they turned out. Here are the final looks:
Wonky Universe Pillow (my son’s):
For the first time, I used invisible zippers for the back opening, across the middle, for both pillows. I love how these look instead of my usual envelope backing:
And now more photos of these pillows all finished:
I am linking up with Let’s get acquainted Monday @ Plum and June and Sew Tuesday @ Better of Thread.
I am continuing on with postage stamp cushions this week and thoroughly enjoying piecing them together. Last week, I posted about this one below, which I hope to finish by this Friday:
The biggest reward I got after sharing this one with everyone, was my 5-year-old asked if he could have one too. Surprisingly, I felt so proud and delighted he wanted one :-), of course I replied and off I went to make one.
I recently purchased the Constellations bundle by Lizzie House for Andover, as I want to use it in a quilt for my son. I decided that I would use a strip of each fabric and add a wonky star in yellow for the sun. I have sewn all the strips for the pillow (10 of them) and here are the top 8 (all I could fit on my hanger). You can see the wonky star which was my first wonky star – it was fun seeing how the pieces come together. I am loving the constellation fabric – great for a boy. The photo has been rotated so you can see what the final pillow will look like.
I am thinking of either quilting straight lines 1/4 inch from the seams (both horizontal and vertically) or diagonal lines through the corners. I am again hoping to have at least the top finish by Friday to show every one.
Anyway, we are over the hump of the week, hope everyone’s week is going well.
