Talk about an epic fail at blogging every day in November! =) My girlies have been under the weather–colds/coughs and good old pink eye….blah! Chloe was friendly enough to share that last one with me which was a true joy–and then she was kind enough to tell me: “Mom you shouldn’t let anyone see you, you look horrible!” You gotta love 5 year olds! ha! It finally hit me just today that perhaps Chloe has allergies and not a chronic cold since starting Kindergarten. I just assumed she was picking up colds since starting school–but, it is fall and allergy season is in full swing & my hubby has suffered from allergies for years….so, now I’m wondering if Chloe might have them as well….hmmmm…time will tell. =)
I’ve been wanting to share more pics of my last wordless Wednesday post–that little pillow up there is the completed project. I can’t take credit for the pattern–it is from this book–I enjoyed making up this pillow–it went together quite quickly.
The pieces were all fused to the white background using heat n bond lite and then I used a blanket stitch around them all. The polka dot border was also fused to the background—it’s not pieced into the white. I thought this was a little bit ingenious as it eliminates seams in the interior of the pillow.
I used a mix of Katie Jump Rope, Flea Market Fancy, Peas & Carrots, Far Far Away, Flora & Fauna, & Lotus fabrics. I love how bright and cheerful they are all together. I also enjoyed the flange on the pillow–I hadn’t made a pillow using this technique before and it was super easy. =)
P.S. Hop on over to Quilting Bee Blocks, I was asked to do this weeks “Pick 5 Monday” & you can check out my picks. =)
