A quick stop

Pillow in progress

There will be no sewing this week at SCQ Towers, but I can show you my progress on the pillows/cushions I am making with the She Can Quilt Blogger Bundle from Fluffy Sheep Quilting. I have wanted a wonky cross pillow for a long time, and I am so pleased at how these fabrics work together using this pattern. The back is quilted too, and so all I need it time to add the invisible zipper and write you the quick tutorial, hopefully Friday night.

Here is my other pillow top so far. I made a pillow with this sort of improv pixels with white Essex Linen for a swap a while ago and have been wanting to do something similar for me. I am looking forward to finishing it too.

Other news:

  • The mention of QuitCon got everyone booking hotels already. I saw a note that the MQG is going to get some more rooms for those of us who did not realize there was a rush. I am so going, it is going to be so fun to meet so may of my internet friends in person.
I have a really busy work schedule this week, so off I go.

Best,

Leanne

To be honest with you I didn't really like those flowery prints in the bundle but it looks pretty good :-) It is nice combo.

It's so fun to see your Cycles 2 popping up here and there. Saw it today on the Quilt Inspiration blog.

That bundle has made such a gorgeous cushion panel. They are a very sophisticated selection of pink and greys.

I am in love with your wonky cross pillow. Saw it on IG and it stuck in my head! I signed up for a room for QuiltCon on day one, thankfully! Oh, and congrats on being in the top 10!!
