Good morning! Thanks for all the really nice comments on my final project yesterday! You guys know exactly what to say and how to say it! I had so much fun with Kimberly and Debbie with this project. Super thanks to Fat Quarter Shop for hosting such a great sew-a-long!
This week is off to a rocky start for me, I have the dreaded summer cold! I'm not really all that sick but plan on spending a lot of time with a box of tissues next to my chair and plenty of crime tv. But I don't want to leave you wondering if I finished up that strawberry pillow!
What do you think? I'm so super happy with it. It was simple to make, just whip up 4 of those luscious ripe strawberries and sew them in a row. Take your left over 3 1/2 inch strips of background and stitch them on as borders. Quilt it up and make a pillow. I simply grid quilted the strawberries and outlined the blocks and that was it! I think the hardest part was those stinken pom poms, but I Googled up a couple of tutorials and took the best they all had to offer and gave it a go. I have an envelope back on it, so once I sewed around the edge it was pillow time!
I'm probably going to relax for most of the week so I can kick this bug to the curb. I'll check back in with you guys and announce the winner of the strawberry drawing by the end of the week! Take it easy! xo
