I finished my Warp and Weft Challenge. It isn't due until November! Yay! Warp and Weft has put together custom bundles of fat quarters for our guild and those that wish buy the bundle and make something. How much fun is that? Esmari put together a really lovely bundle and with a bit of other fabric I went to town. I made a pair of cushion covers for the living room. I really love them. They are about 24" square with slightly rounded corners for fun and simple lapped zipper back. I ordered extra Robert Kaufman linen for the back. I needed more than the fat quarter that was in the bundle. I used some Anna Maria Horner Hand-drawn Garden Social Climber fabric for the centre plus in the Japanese Cross/Plus blocks and added a bit of text fabric too for fun. The Social Climber print is the perfect zing with the other fabrics. I added a bit of cordless piping around the edges of the pillow in the same Essex linen as the pillow backs. Theses just make me happy!
The quilting is the kicker! I quilted a fairly dense grid with Aurifil 30 wt in a lovely gold-beige(2314). It is a lovely more than just beige thread that added the perfect gilding to the pillow covers.
What more can I say? I used the tutorial from Badskirt for the blocks.
Linking up with Amanda Jean for finish it up Friday.
