Work On A Scrappy Chenille Throw Pillow

30 Sep

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

28 Sep

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!

Wonky Quilt: All Finsihed!

27 May

I did it! I finished the Wonky Quilt from Quilt In A Day! I’m so excited. I’m going to hang it up in the shop I work at for a few weeks, and then it is being sent to my friend for her new born son! I went with purple stippling, and then some yellow stippling overlap in the border. I also picked a very folky / country backing for the quilt since they live on a farm! Everything about this is very excited!  I just love the way it turned out! I can’t wait to mail it!

Quilt In A Day: Throw Pillow Complete

25 May

I finished this throw pillow late mast night, well I guess it was technically early this morning, but whatever! I just did stitching in the ditch to make the geometry of the pillow pop! I still have to quilt the baby quilt I made for my friend’s new son! Not sure if I’ll quilt in the ditch for that, or do a stipple. I can’t wait to put a pillow form in it and throw it on my bed. First I’ve got to wash it. I feel like this is going to be my great pillow weekend. I’m going to do so many things with my weekend! I don;t go back to work until Tuesday, so I’ve got some time to complete a few UFO in my stash! Wish me luck!

Throw Pillow: Once More With Feeling!

10 Apr

You all know I love them, and here is one I just finished! It is just a simple rail fence block, but I used some fun fabrics! I love how loud and obnoxious it is! I did some stippling in light purple thread, just to tie in some of the purple tones in the fabric. I think the colors might blend a tad bit too well, and some of the definition is lost, but I’ll get over it! It will be on my bed soon enough anyways!

Quilted Throw Pillows!

9 Apr

 

As we all know, I’m just madly in love with throw pillows. I can pump out two of them in an evening. I made this one at work for a class I am teaching. It will be on Wednesday April 16th at the Merrillville Sewing Center. So, if you are in the area, you should definitely come and check it out! Anyways, here is the pillow. Originally I wanted to do a bargello pillow, but it was just not enough working space. I think I’m going to do a bargello table runner next though! Until then, I’m making one more throw pillow, and I’ll post that later! Wish me luck!

Yet Another Quilted Pillow

17 Mar

I just love using variegated thread! It makes my world go round! I also am now in desperate need of an embroidery machine! I’m still experimenting with the embroidery machines, I’m sure once I get all of the features down pat, I will definitely be buying one! All I need is $6,500! Better get saving!
