Pillow Collective :: Free Tutorial

Posted on February 3rd, by Amy in Pillow Collective, Tutorial. 7 comments

No doubt, there are a lot of quilts around my house! I love surrounding myself, and my family with the quilts I have loved making, and sometimes adding a pillow to the couch finishes the room off perfectly! This time of year, I’m always looking for more color to override the cold, bleak winter days. Recently, I sorted through my scraps and bundled them up so I could put them to better use, and decided that this pillow would be perfect for (some of) my scraps!

I love the precision that comes with paper piecing and odd-sized scraps are always great in paper patterns since I trim up after sewing.

I’ve come down with a cold, and there’s no one to blame but myself! I’m finally starting to feel like myself again, but have zero energy.

Instead I’ve caught up on some email, and sat on the couch with a pretty pile of fabric.

I have a pillow for my Pillow Collective tutorial, all planned out, and hope to sew it today. . . now that I have all the pieces together, and enough energy to hold my head up!

I hope you will join us next week for Pillow Collective – there are some great tutorials in the works!

What have you been sewing lately?

More soon -
