And it all started with the mini I created for the #geeseswap.
Here she is, in all her bold-binded glory.
I wasn't sure about that bottom row of geese, but the instagram consensus was to leave it on. So I did.
And then I made a pillow front for my #makersbirthdaybash girl. Not a style I typically make, so I hope my girl likes it.
I made this pillow front using the Treehouse Chimney Sweep free pillow pattern found here. I looked at my girl's inspiration mosaic and was so tempted to make the exact design she shared in her mosaic, but I have something about surprises.... I am the same way with my kids and gifts. They tell me what they want, and then I give them a couple of those things and then make the rest surprises, things I think they'd like but had not considered. So hopefully I got this right. I am sort of tempted to make another pillow cover just in case....
I wasn't sure what pattern to make, so I turned to one of my new favorite quilt books, By The Bundle.
There are quite a few patterns I want to make from this book, but there is pattern I want to make 50 times over!!
I think it is the Liberty that drew me in, but I love the reverse negative space. It gives me the white space I need, while still filling the quilt with color and pattern.
I altered the sizes a bit-- I made the blocks bigger, and did less blocks. I had just received a Quilters Mystery Box from massdrop, and in it was a cute little mermaid/sea-themed bundle! So I whipped this up from 20 fat quarters and VOILA!
If you are curious about the measurements of the blocks I made and you already have the book, just shoot me a message and I would be happy to share. :)
What's even better-- there are still some fat quarters left for me to piece a backing! That is my plan for tomorrow!!
Happy Friday friends!! Linking up here:
