This morning I completed my newest Cathedral Window pillow! Isn't it awesome?!
I absolutely love it. It doesn't match a thing in my house but I really don't care.
Here's a view of the backing I chose for it. I wanted something with a warm
and bright feeling and I think this fabric fits the bill pretty good.
Next on my agenda today was to start making a runner for my son.
He recently moved into a new place and asked if I would make a table runner for the
top of an old hope chest I had given him. How could I refuse?
For a while I racked my brain, unable to decide what fabrics to use. So much of what's in my stash is pretty girly, flowery...not very masculine at all. Then I had my light bulb moment...SOLIDS. I settled on solids because they are gender neutral.
When he came home for a visit this weekend I asked him to pick five fabrics from the solids
hoarding collecting in every color of the rainbow. And this is what he chose...ACK.
I was like "Seriously dude? Are you tryin' to give me a brain aneurysm?"
Never in my life would I have chosen those colors to go together...never in a million years. But I gotta tell you. The more I looked at this color combination, the more I kinda liked it. After thinking for a while about what to make, I settled on another braid project and came up with this.
Don't you just love it?! I do. I don't know why but those colors really do work well together.
After I've quilted the runner this coming week, I plan to start on a lap quilt
for my son's couch using the same colors.
Well that's all for now but stay tuned because in the next day or so I'm going
to post a tutorial on the technique I used to make this pillow.
Till next time...
