Some things!

This last week has been one of the most productive in a while.  I’ve been pleasantly busy making some gifts.

My friend Sarah asked me almost a year ago to make her a Kindle case and it finally happened.  She told me she loves the tiny clothes fabric by Aneela Hooey so I pulled some coordinating scraps and used this pattern with a couple minor adjustments.Kindle case Kindle case Kindle case    Kindle case

This pillow is for my best friend Catherine.  She accompanied me to the Little General last year and bought some fabric that she left with me.  I used the Virginia star from Carol Doak’s 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars because Virginia is where we met and became friends (though I now live in NC and she in KY).

I started with the Anna Maria Horner velveteen and pulled coordinating fabrics.  The velveteen was definitely a little harder to work with but it made for a really cozy pillow.  I fussy cut a few sections but you can’t really tell.

It has an envelope closure and measures 18″ square.

I made another pillow as a sneak peek of a quilt for a baby shower.  I didn’t have the quilt done in time but I wanted to send them something useful instead of just a picture so I made this small pillow.IMG_0158It’s based on the Baby Roller Rink pattern from Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman using blue and green scraps. The pillow made it to California just in time (I photographed it at the post office!) and was loved.  I’m hopeful they’ll love the quilt too, which I’m sending off on Monday.IMG_0156

It has an envelope closure and measures a very snug 12″ x 14″.

  1. Wow you have been busy! Love the velveteen pillow! Hoped I might see you at our guild meeting with Melody Miller. She was really great!

    1. Thank you! I really wanted to come to the guild meeting but I have small group through my church on Tuesday nights :( I’m sure Melody was great! Karen Gray has started a group that meets on Wednesday afternoons and/or nights which I think will be really good. Thanks so much for being a loyal reader, Colleen :)
