In my last newsletter, I shared a photo of Mr. Mickey on the couch with “his” pillow and another pillow that was a forgotten quilt tutorial. When I go through my old posts…..I find all kinds of projects that i need to write tutorials for! I think I will call this pillow the Brick Road quilt design.
I couldn’t believe how many of you wanted a pattern for this pillow! I figured it would be something fast and easy to write up. Well, I was wrong about that!
I think I spent about three hours searching through photos on my computer looking for pictures of the steps to make this pillow. I never found them (watch, I’ll find them after I finish making the block again).
I know the fabrics are batiks from Island Batik and somewhere there is a quilt made with with them.
Anyway, here is a closer look at the pillow. It looks different depending on how you turn it.
Looks different this way doesn’t it?
Back to the tutorial
So I looked at the pillow, measured the blocks and strips and I could have written up a tutorial for it but…..I decided it would be easiest to just make it again.
It is always fun to make a pattern again with different fabrics so that is what I’m doing. These are batiks that I have in my stash.
I know I can’t get it finished today so I thought I would at least let you know I’m working on it and will get it done soon.
What really makes it work is using one print that has various colors in it. Then when you cut the pieces it almost looks like several different prints.
I show you a closeup of the fabric when I get the tutorial finished but the photo below will give you a better idea of what I mean.
I’m being watched
While I was outside taking the pictures I had
someone something watching me…..a squirrel! We have all kinds of them around.
Of course, putting corn out might encourage them to visit. They are so much fun to watch and they love to tease Mr. Mickey when we go on walks.
Okay, I’d better get back to working on that tutorial.
