I am using some of the same fabrics that I used on the pillow I made from the Quick Strip Paper-Piecing class, which reminds me that I need to go back and watch more lessons.
I actually pieced this a while ago using some of the batik scraps I bought at the Calico Hutch in Minnesota in 2013. Where does the time go????? That post is here and you buy packages of fabric by the pound. I used my Sizzix Big Shot and a die called Flourish #2. Instead of throwing away the outside part of the cut I just used a rotary cutter with a wave blade to trim it up so I could use it for another project.
I wanted to make a quick and easy project that I could show you as I have other things I’m working on that I can’t share. I decided to try 2 layers of Warm & Natural to give a little bit more loft to the pillow top.
Here is the backside of the pillow, I used premium muslin as a liner.
I was a little short on fabric for the back of the pillow. I had several small pieces left that I could put together. I was still a little short but had a piece that was similar. I was able to put it on the inside flap and you can’t even see it on the finished pillow.
The batiks are kind of a grey blue color and I made the extra piece into a little mug rug.
It is freezing here in Iowa! We got 7 inches of snow yesterday and schools are closed today because of the cold, sounds like they will be closed tomorrow also. Keep warm!
