We had a quiet weekend so I decided to pull out some fabrics and start sewing! It was great to get back into creating some new things. I started out by drawing out a sketch for this block and am really happy with how it turned out as a pillow.
In piecing these pillows, I used the same technique as the "sun rays" block. I've always meant to do this with that design. I really like the movement and the interesting pattern that it makes within the block.
The backs were fun to make, too. It's a simple envelope closure with a band of contrasting fabric on the one show side. I just like how that looks and I think it adds a little more strength to that piece of fabric. It just finishes it off perfectly.
The quilting is fun and simple, too. There's a layer of cotton batting in between and a stippling design for the quilting.
The pillow covers are made for two 18" pillow forms and are available in my etsy shop!
I hope your week is off to a great start. I'm headed to the zoo today with my little guy before the older ones start summer break later in the week!
