I had some block lefts and also some of the batiks so I have decided to make pillows for our bed that will go with the Cherry Berry Scattered quilt. I have had so much fun with this beautiful collection!This month the challenge for the Island Batik ambassadors is to create a project with creative borders.
Looking through the scraps of my Cherry Berry collection I found that I had quite a few scraps that were a little over 3 inches so I pulled out my AccuQuilt GO! 2 ½" finished half square triangle die (HST) and started using up some of my Cherry Berry batiks.I love how fast all of the HSTs were cut and most of the scraps were used up!
I'm not sure yet what other borders I will add to the blocks to make my pillow shams. I would like to end up with king size pillows.
Remember when I said most of the scraps were used up? I had little strips leftover and I couldn't throw them in the garbage. I am just stitching them together and maybe I'll make a mug rug at some point.

I won't be working anymore on this project for a week or so as tomorrow we are heading up to Minnesota to visit with Bob's mom. She will be 97 on Sunday! She can't wait to see little Sadie again.
I'm sure we'll be stopping at some quilt stores along the way!
We normally go up twice a year but didn't make it in June since my dad was so sick. It seems strange to think about going on a trip and not having to let dad know when we will be back and make sure he has everything he would need while we are gone. It is hard to believe it is just a little over 2 weeks since he died. Miss you dad!
