Happy New Year to you all!
Are you full of resolve for the new year?
I have plans for this year.
My fave quote is this one...
"A year from now, you may wish you had started today."
Amen to that!
Yesterday, I made a comment on Facebook that
I was in my happy place.
Here's what I was making...
|12 inch pillow cover|
Way back in 2010, I received a very special gift.
Read about it here.
It took me forever to quilt it...
but I finally did.
July of 2012.
I call it my winter quilt.
I love throw pillows
and had decided a long time ago
that I needed to have at least one
to go with each of my quilts.
I didn't make this winter quilt,
so I didn't have scraps to match it.
Initially, I had thrown a pillow cover
made with vintage happy fabrics
on the 12" pillow form and had that on the bed.
And, though I love this pillow cover,
it just doesn't work with the winter quilt.
So, I pulled out my container of primitive fabrics
and put together a pillow cover.
I made it using the same pattern as the quilt...
alternating 9 patch squares with squares.
I quilted it in the same pattern (diagonal lines)
as I had quilted the winter quilt.
I love it.
I am very pleased with how it turned out!
(I am going to break my arm patting myself on the back one of these days!)
