Now, remember those quilts. . . the ones made in three weeks, right before Christmas that added so much excitement to my December? The Giant Purple Star and the Giant Blue Star? Well, pillows were ordered as well but the answer was, "Ho, Ho, No!" in terms of getting them done in time for Christmas Eve. After a day or two break, I went back to the machine! :) Deadline? 12/30. Did I make it? YUP ;)
I had a lot of fabric left over from the blue quilt. I love that fabric and when I bought it, I bought a good amount - thankfully because I want a quilt of my own with that fabric!! :) I decided that the pillow would be a mini version of the quilt. Except for the quilting ;) LOL I used Amanda Jean's envelope back pillow method again. I have to say, LOVE making these. Quick satisfying finishes are always a good thing right? :) Here it is!
|I ditched the star but. . . no quilting in those print triangles. . . can you believe it? LOL|
|LOVE how the blue thread matches perfectly and really pops on the black :)|
|LOTS of ruler work on this one :)|
|It just makes me smile :)|
What have I been working on? . . . Renee's Mini!!! And it is finished. Going in the mail today! She should get it Friday or Saturday. . . come back and see the big reveal! I cannot wait for her to get it and I cannot wait to see what Renee has up her sleeve for me! The suspense is almost unbearable!!! ;)
AND, remember those 300 HSTs that were a by product from Jason's quilt? . . . well I've started trimming. And I think I have decided on a layout. Those HSTs need to be a quilt. Now! :) Look for at least a flimsy finish by next Friday. Probably not a quilt finish, we are headed north to play in the snow for a few days. . . hmmmm, might have to bring my cutting mat, rotary cutter and HSTs!! LOL
Linking up with Lorna for Let's Bee Social and Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday!
Until next time, keep on quilting! I'll be trimming ;)
