Pillow Swap

I belong to a small online quilting group and this summer we decided to do a pillow swap.  A girl can never have to many throw pillows, in my opinion, so I joined in.  My swap partner requested orange and grey, so that is exactly what I did!

I flip between buying patterns and drafting them myself.  This is one of those times that I bought the pattern.  I bought it from RebeccaMaeDesigns on Craftsy.  It went together very well, although a little time consuming, there is a LOT of seams in this pillow!

I opted for a zipper on the seam and piping to help conceal the zipper.  It came out great on the outside, and gives a nice clean back.  However, I should have planned a little better, the zipper was pretty messy on the inside.  Next time.

I like it a lot, maybe I will make one for myself someday!

Little Boxes Quilt

This quilt has been completed and on my daughters bed for a month or so now.  She was very happy to have a quilt made by her Mama.

The pattern is Suburbs by Cluck Cluck Sew.  It was a super fast and easy quilt to put together!  I, of course, chose my favourite fabric, solids (Kona Cotton) and made the houses pink and purple at my little girls request!

Since the quilt was finished I have been looking around for a place that I could take a picture.  It needed to be a place that my two girls could help me with.  I finally found it!  The quilt is almost full size.  It actually fits on a full mattress with no drape, the biggest quilt I have done yet!

I quilted it on my home machine, lots of straight lines.  I love that my kids all have quilts on their beds now.  I finally feel like I am putting my stamp in my house and making it a wonderful home for my family.
