A break in continuity as I am spending some time away from my sewing machine. I have worked hard to ensure that there will still be new blog posts and have several different projects to show you over the next week or so.
|Dreamin' Vintage Patchwork Pillow and Quilt|
Remember this cute Dreamin' Vintage Flying Geese Quilt that I made late last month? Well, my method of sewing flying geese units does leave a certain amount of scrap fabric / waste; all triangles that I thought were just too pretty and too big to throw in the bin.
Save the scraps! And so I chain pieced all of the triangles into half square triangles (HST), using both a light and a dark fabric for each HST unit. I then played with the layout, arranging and rearranging until I was happy, and pieced the units into a patchwork fabric.
Not big enough for a quilt but certainly big enough for a pillow; and so I basted and then quilted it with edge to edge straight lines, outlining both sides of all seam lines. A zippered side seam allows for easy insert removal and cleaning.
For the back of the pillow cover I have used a single home decorator weight fabric by Premier Prints.
This pillow has already sold and is now on the way to a new home.
It's been a while since my last Half Square Triangle quilt project and this has my fingers itching to re-visit this easy and versatile unit once again.
Thank you for stopping by,
