sewing in good company


Can you stand yet another picture of a quilted pillow! But, yes here they are. I had the fun opportunity to spend the weekend with my closest girlfriends...sewing! I made another round of pillows for our Olliekate November Handmade Holidays show. We had so much fun sharing all of our sewing ideas, I am always inspired by these women. I took my first real try at a string quilt method using this tutorial. It was pretty labor intensive but the effect is cool and once quilted I think it will make a neat pillow. I can't imagine making a whole quilt like it at this point though! Too bad the weekend couldn't last longer. Thanks for the fun time girls!

MUNKI GOLDFISH!! I just ordered up some a' those fellas the other day and have taken to stalking my mailman with great anticipation. Beautiful projects - I love the look of string quilts, but I doubt I could have the focus to make enough blocks to make something of it!
