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?
