You can make these 2 pillows from a charm pack and 5/8 yard of one additional fabric! They are fast and fun to make. I have plans to make many more for around the house.
Fabric is Maasai Mara by Dear StellaPattern - Candy Dish JBQ 125
Designed by me
Quilted by me
Started on 6/19/12
Finished on 7/6/12
Pillows Measure 16" x 16"
I filmed a couple of videos on Candy Dish as a part of the Journey 2 Nebula. You can sign up for the Journey self paced as well as watch the videos on YouTube.
These pillows feature two of the four shapes that the Hex N More Ruler can cut. The Hexagon & the Triangle.
Here are some outtakes from the cover photo shoot.
I liked this photo... but thought that hard rocks with soft pillows was just a weird mix!
Detail of the pillows and my quilting. I quilted straight lines approximately 3/8" apart from each other in a large zig zag across the pillows.
Next the pillows took a trip to hang out on our patio chairs. Not bad... but still not what I wanted yet.
I headed inside and took some photos of the pillows on my favorite chair.
I almost used this photo... but decided there wasn't enough room for the title.
Here is what I ended up with.
At the Long Beach show over the weekend my mom asked me where I took this photo. I laughed for a moment and told her to look closer... she didn't see it. Then I revealed to her... "Mom I took it in your room, don't you recognize your sheets!" We all had a good laugh.
...and I think my mom wants to keep them now!
