I had one of those rare afternoons this week...where I could have cleaned but I decided to sew instead. I've been working on Christmas things...but that afternoon I decided I'd just put on some music and sew a random "me" project.
I got this sampler packet of organics fabric from Quilt Camp. I had an idea to make them into sheep for a wall hanging...but today decide they'd make a warm, lovey pillow. My friend gave me her packet too...so, I had enough for a nice sized pillow.
The variety of thicknesses was vast. Some were heavenly soft. The organic Sherpa in particular...oh, my! My my my!! Too bad I didn't know about this fabric when I had babies. Sooooo soft!
I chain pieced it together and then arranged it with a "snowball" pattern in mind. Between the combination of my anxiousness to get it done (not enough pinning) and the different thicknesses, let's just say...it shifted all over creation....so, NO...you don't get a close up. The seams don't match up. Hey, it's a cozy pillow...it's relaxed about such things.
I tried it out on my bed upstairs but it was just TOO stark on the quilt. I keep thinking I want pillows on my bed...but I am realizing that I don't want any of the blocks of my beautiful quilt covered...hahaha. So, now it's downstairs on the couch. Quickly to be destroyed I'm afraid. Sigh...
Here's a picture where you can kind of see all the different textures of the fabrics. Ooooo...Ahhhh!
