Along with the awesome mini quilt I received in the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap, I received some beautiful Liberty fabric. I love it so much, and immediately wanted to make something out of it. I got 75% of the piecing done, realized I was ONE HST short, and lost steam. And it sat in my to-do pile since then. It was on my August WIP list, so I powered through the last day in August. Not really enjoying the process, but wanting to have another checkmark.
I might not have loved the process, but I LOVE the result. This is a sweet little pillow (14″ square), and I love, love, love the Liberty chevrons.
I quilted it in-the-ditch along the chevron lines. Simple. I like simple quilting.
And I did a simple pillowcase back, in a salmon broadcloth from JoAnn. I was going to use something more luxurious, but I had (and still have) so much of this fabric. And it is the perfect salmon color to coordinate with the bright florals. So I made piece with having some of my most valuable fabrics (Liberty prints) in the same project as some of my most inexpensive fabric (JoAnn broadcloth).
It now sits on my sewing chair – a testimony to doneness! 🙂 Woot.
