This little ditty comes to you from my sunny October deck amongst the colored leaves and the warm breeze. Seriously, this is my most favorite time of year. Ever. I mean the first snowfall comes pretty close, but I could sit out here forever! OK, enough about the weather, lets talk pillows. This week was all about pillows. Quilt As You Go Pillows to be exact.
First was this little beauty. This is a class sample for a QAYG pillow for winter classes at Patch Halifax. I can't wait to teach this one! People are really excited to learn this technique, and it is so nice to be able to piece and quilt at the same time! A time buster, and scrap buster too!
Completing this pillow is actually my A Lovely Year of Finishes Goal for October. Earliest goal finished ever!
Then I really needed to make a mate for this pillow from my couch!
So then there were two!
I am in love with these colors right now. I am calling these my Indian Summer Pillows.
I did make one more thing this week... this wee sunglasses pouch for the October MMQG swap!
Funny story about the little scrap prints in this project... As my students were working on their baby quilts they would be randomly throwing scraps (I mean gigantic pieces people, ok so maybe not gigantic, but definitely useable fabric scraps) into the garbage bins. I started going behind them and rescuing them from certain peril. I am fairy certain they thought that I was crazy, but I pointed out that someday, if their quilting journey continued, they would be as hungry for scraps as I am. Now I am not sure that they believe that, but you do right dear reader? You can't throw away perfectly good scraps!?
But seriously, I could make QAYG things forever. The stitching process never gets old for me, and they always look way harder than they are. Win win! Have you forayed into QAYG? Do you love it, or would you leave it?
Well I hear my parents pulling up the driveway. They are bringing turkey dinner to me! Who has the best parents ever? I do!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I hope you got to do some sewing this glorious weekend:)
