I was finally able to find some time to get some tutorial videos edited! Today I uploaded two new videos – one showing the hand applique and one about the quilting. I have one more to edit – making the pillow cover and installing an invisible zipper. Here is a link to my YouTube channel.
The next few videos that I have planned are: slice and insert, cutting and piecing equilateral triangles. I also have a couple of new tools I’d like to try out and show you how well they work – I’m not big on fancy rulers, but these look very promising!
In the meantime, I have a Riley Blake challenge to get to! Are you doing the MQG challenge?
Today is the last day of the Sanibel Blog Hop! Sanibel is a new Moda fabric line designed by Gina Martin.I don’t know about you, but all of this beautiful weather and flowers coming into bloom gets me in the mood for summer. This fun and colorful fabric is just what I need to add a little summer color to my house! I love the variety of playful prints. Gina included some very graphic prints like the lawn chair webbing, Adirondack chairs, circles and sunglasses. There are also some more organic prints like the large scale floral and a small scale floral.
I decided to make a set of throw pillows for my otherwise plain gray couch.
I wanted to design something fun and easy-going. These pillows were a joy to make. I have a video tutorial up on my youtube channel.I will be adding more videos to the series that will include how to quilt the block with a walking foot and how to make the pillow cover using an invisible zipper.I love this fabric line so much that I couldn’t stop at throw pillows! I had to start a quilt. I was hoping to have it well underway by now, but life keeps getting in the way! Here’s where I am so far. I’m hoping to have some time to dedicate to it by the end of the month, so stay tuned!
Gina is letting me giveaway a layer cake of her Sanibel fabric – which is perfect for making these pillows! Just leave a comment here or on the video to enter any time before Sunday, April 12th! Congratulations to Beth, the winner of the layer cake!
