A quilted pillow top

Quilted pillow top on Needle & Ladle

 

Today I’m sharing a quilted pillow top which I made several weeks ago to use some of my scrap fabrics. You might have seen it awhile ago on my instagram or flickr on my sidebar since I’m so slow in updating my blog…. 😄

The main part comprises (7 rows by 7 rows) 49 pieces of 2.5″ squares. I pieced these 49 squares all together and then added the 2.5″ wide light jade green border pieces. It is quilted in simple straight stitches. My pillow form (from Hancock Fabrics) measures 18″ x 18″, so I made the quilted pillow cover to be exactly 18″ x 18″. I like it to be a little snugly fit. The back closure is the simple envelope style.  Do you like the light jade green border? I’m glad I chose this color!

By the way, have you seen the book Pillow Pop: 25 quick-sew projects to brighten your space? I checked out this book from our local library and it’s full of inspiring pillow cover projects! Some projects are complicated for me at this point but I hope I can manage them someday!

 

 

Until next time,,,, enjoy the new week, friends!

Triangles baby quilt

The other day I finished my first baby quilt!! My brother is having his first kid (my first nephew!!) and I figured he already has so many baby clothes gifted from family and friends so maybe I’d just make a blanket or quilt.

Craftsy BOM 2013 with Laura Nownes- January

Is anyone also following Craftsy Block of Month 2013? I found this class when they just started in January, I liked the layout of the whole quilts and decided to quilt along! The link to the class is here, you will need to register to take the class.

Here is my January blocks- we need to make four blocks with the same pattern. I think this is called Log Cabin?  I used my scrap fabrics for this block, somehow the dots and stripes turned out to be an interesting combination.

A little quilting going on here….

I think I have probably said one hundred times of “I want to make a quilt”.  I love browsing the web and admiring the wonderful quilts work by all those amazing quilters.  But the idea of cutting into my nice fabrics just intimidates me.

I bought a Scoot fat quarter bundle by Riley Blake on Christmas, and luckily Riley Blake Design is having a Mystery Block Quilt-Along this year! So I joined the group and hopefully I can make a nice quilts for my boy by the end of the year!

Here is my work so far for the January Chevron block.

My pick of color for this block is cream, yellow, and blue.  Next thing to do is to square all these blocks into 2.5″ x 2.5″, and then sew them up into chevron…..    Wish me luck!
