Edges by Laura Gunn and a Flying Geese Pillow Cover

This bundle of goodies arrived in the mail late last week courtesy of Michael Miller Fabrics.  Edges is a new collection by designer Laura Gunn.   Edges is a unique range of basic designs all of which have been hand painted by Laura.  The careful brushstrokes and subtle color changes are evidence of Laura's love for hand painting and color.
I was immediately taken by the range of colors in varying shades, especially the softer colors (so pretty!).  Out came the rotary cutter and together with a wide selection of black/white (predominantly white) fabric for contrast I got busy making flying geese in a similar style to those made as part of the Marcelle Medallion Quilt.

50 Flying Geese each measuring 2 inches x 4 inches and made into a pillow cover.

As usual there was the battle of the bulky seam when quilting, but I pushed on and have quilted with a grid of lines just 1 inch apart.  
For the back of the pillow cover I have used a home decorator weight fabric - Artemis in Black by Alexander Henry.

The pillow cover is ready for shipping! I have updated my Etsy Store.  You can find the listing here:  Modern Patchwork Pillow Cover.


My thanks goes to Michael Miller and Laura Gunn for the sampling of the Edges collection.  I have enjoyed the fabric play and plan on adding a few of these prints to my stash - in particular the light greys, soft pinks and the neutrals.

  8. Love what you did with this collection. I'm quite partial to all of Laura's Painter's Canvas pieces, which have such a clean graphic texture. I now have them in eight colors and will be sewing with some of them very soon.
