Pillow Talk

Finished couple pillows over the weekend. They are washed up and soft, but have not yet made it out of my sewing area. You see, I would only have to wash them again all to soon. There are several with fevers in the house. Every quilt and every sheet will soon need washing, and I just can't bring myself to add to the mountain!

This block was a rogue in a quilt, naughty block. I loved it anyway, and put it to good use.

I used only stash for these pillows, so when I ran a little short of fabric for the back, I improvised. I love the scrappiness of it all!

This one is my favorite, the colors make me think of watermelon and lemonade. I am so ready for summer!!!

Love the back of this one eve more!!! Most of these fabrics are of various lines of my favorite designer Jennifer Paganelli. Most are, unfortunately, out of print, and the last of my stash used. The up side is that when we are all well, we can cuddle them daily!!

Linking up with Randi for Show and Tell Tuesday, and Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday.

Scrappy Trip Works in Progress

Just a note, Google Reader is going to shut down this summer.  You can follow this blog with Bloglovin.  I am finding it to be a sleek reader, especially on my iPhone.
Well, my scrappy trip along quilt has been a constant ray of sunshine since I started it.  Sticking with one quilt from start to finish is not usually how I roll.  This quilt is just different for me I guess. 

I also had this drool-worthy block that Rene' sent to me all cut out and ready to sew in some of my favorite Jennifer Paganell fabrics. Well, I had been toying with the idea of my family needing some big puffy pillows since we removed the carpet in the living room. I pulled some Paganelli stash out and made a border and binding.

This block was made to be part of my scrappy trip along quilt, but it didn't play nice with the others.  So I put it in time-out and made another one.  Funny, I still love the naughty little thing.  So another pillow was born!  More Paganelli stash for border and binding.
Now they are in my busy bag waiting for a moment for hand sewing.
As for my scrappy trip quilt, it is telling me nicely how it wants to be quilted.  I am just loving this sweet quilt.  Violet, my Singer 201, is speeding right along.  This has been an exceptional week already, in that I have gotten two days already with chunks of time to sew.  That just hasn't happened.  Don't know if there will be more time this week, but I am sure hoping!  I just can't wait to finish this quilt.
