Somebody, stop me!

You didn't think I would let those practice little quilts go to waste, did you? A little pressing, a little seaming, and possibly two more green strips, and I've got myself a top for a toss pillow!

Good thing, too: this cover I knit eons ago doesn't have a partner, the bland pillow form stuffed somewhere in the back of my closet. I originally planned to knit Dale Damask #2007 to match, but I think a quilted pillow case would be nice, too!

I love sewing for the instant gratification. They turned out great!

Oh, no: there's no stopping anyone when this kind of thing starts happening.

By the way, when I clicked through to comment here I noticed that there are scissors in the photo on your last post. You've been tipped off to the joys of the rotary cutter, haven't you? It will change your quilting life.

That would make a beautiful pillow. What a great idea!

Your squares look beautiful, especially for a relatively new quilter! It IS really addictive, no?

How fun! Although, I also like the idea of using those for coasters. It must be hard to decide what project to work on! I can't wait to see how this pillow turns out.

You've opened Pandora's box of woven fabrics; there's no closing it now.

Horay for quilting and knitting!!! the pros of the one always seem to make up for the cons of the other! For instance, I can quilt a blanket much faster than knitting (duh), but one fatal cut through the fabric is all it takes to give you more work and frustration. measure twice, cut once... good motto!

Yep, no stopping you now. The quilting bug is really sweeping around these days.

Go you! It's looking good!

The topper pillow cover will work out great, but I do love the knitted one too. Make another of both and change with your mood.

Wow -- the visual energy of your pillow cover reminds me of nona's log cabin swatches, which remind me of Gee's Bend quilts -- which remind me of your pillow cover --


bow down to your color choices!

whee! all this quilt inspiration is so... inspiring!

will make a great sham--nice work!
