Quilty Pillow

I've been working at reclaiming my living room from the kids - 
and trying to convert it to a more inviting 'adult' space.

And because I've been bitten by the quilting bug, I thought I'd make a new pillow for the couch.

 This is a much smaller quilting project than my last one but it packs a lot more punch!
I was anxious to really sink my teeth into a more modern style of 'quilting'. 
I use the term loosely because really - it is a pieced pillow sham. 


  It's a slip cover so there was no actual 'quilting' or sandwiching involved. 

Hidden zipper in back

The pillow cover is removable so I can throw it in the wash (did I mention I have two boys?!).

Now I just need to make one more!
 Thanks for reading :)

Acquiring new skills

So this is what I've been up to lately.

Quilting! Or more specifically - peicing a quilt.
I took a class and learned how to sew these various blocks into what's called a sampler quilt.
Next I'm taking a machine quilting class so I can learn how to free-motion quilt this baby and call 'er done!
Stay tuned...
