Work On A Scrappy Chenille Throw Pillow

I had a theory! I was going to post a tutorial for chenille pillows, but I really wanted to see if I could make one with my scraps. I put them all down, and sewed on the bias, so now I’m just waiting to wash it to see if it turns out okay. I wanted to do a chenille pillow with more texture, and I think I’ve got it! I’ll post a picture of it washed sometime later this week, as well as a tutorial for both!

Chenille Throw Pillow

A couple of nights ago, I got board with the projects I am working on, so I decided to take a break and pound out a throw pillow! I had never really done anythign where you make your own chenille, so I figured I would give it a try! Not bad for my first attempt! I think I’m going to run with this idea and make antoher one tonight! We’ll see!

Put The Border On ‘On Point Autumn’

It took me a while to figure out what I was going to do with it, but now that I have, I’m really excited to quilt it. I have a few other priority project going on at the moment, but this just might jump the queue a bit. It is just so much better than I thought it would be! Not sure how to quilt it though. Any suggestions?

Working On My Latest Crazy Quilt

I finally got back to work on this beautiful piece of color atrocity! I just love it! It is just so bright and annoying! I’m not sure how large I am going to make it, but I’m thinking I’ll make it a larger size throw quilt. Maybe 70″ by 70″. Just a thought! I’ve still got to add a few more embellishments to it. Any idea what else I can add to it?

On Point Autumn Quilt Half Embroidered

Okay, so while rummaging through the embroidery designs at work, I found this gem! I’ve been in a fall mood with the rustic leaves, and then I found this other design. I just had to make a quilt! So, I was thinking since it is on point I would do 3 blocks by 3 blocks, and put in some fun fall batiks on the off spaces and the border. What do you all think?

Anita Goodesign’s Rustic Leaves On Tea Towels

So, I finally got back into sewing. It no longer hurts to sit hunched over a sewing machine. (It’s very hard being 6’6″.) So, I was at work rifling through the latest Anita Goodesigns, and look what I found! Some adorable leaf patterns! The pattern is called rustic leaves, and it is just too cute not to make! Here is one tea towel, and I’m still working on the other one. I’ll post that one soon!
