A rectangular patchwork pillow based on Posie Gets Cozy’s Summerhouse Pillow tutorial. I just love making these. I have so many 2 1/2″ squares cut out from scraps. It is so much fun putting the fabrics together. I know they are a little crazy and probably wouldn’t go with anyone’s decor, but I like them. Maybe I should try and add some solids?
Trying some machine quilting on my own after a class with Elizabeth Hartman a while back. Here I pieced together some of the many 1 1/2″ squares I’ve cut from scraps and used some spearmint green Kona cotton between the patchwork strips.
I made four of these rectangles. They are an odd size. Then quilted them using my favorite design so far — what I call the “mod square”. Not sure what I’m going to do with them. Maybe a pillow or a table runner? I’ve moved on to some other things, but will revisit these soon.
Here’s a zippered pouch I made with linen and 2 1/2″ squares of some of my favorite green fabrics. The original instructions called for a hand-sewn lining. I was not up for that so I modified the instructions using a lining that was part of the pouch construction, not a last addition. I think this makes it a nicer looking and more solidly constructed pouch.
