I'm feeling like a little Victorian lady these days. Sewing by hand and hand quilting are my crafts of choice while listening to audiobooks on my ipod...well maybe not so Victorian after all.... I'm currently working on two pillow cases at the same time using all my Liberty lawn fabric scraps. Everything might look a little too busy right now, but somehow all the patterns come together nicely in the end. Our appartment is mostly furnished in black and white, and patchwork pillows add just the right amount of color.
I've paper-pieced (is that even a verb?) what felt like a million hexagons to make a round pillow case for a round cushion (duh). I ended up making the pillow itself as well because round pillows are nowhere to be found these days. In Berlin. Can you believe it?
I quilted the front and back of the rectangular pillow case by hand with different colors of embroidery thread. Never thought I would enjoy this as much as I did. To top it all off and make it even more colorful I'll add an applique to one side. Ha!
I love this absolutely crazy pattern...not even sure if these are flowers. It looks like the fabric designer was on recreational drugs while drawing this.
We already have a fair amount of pillows, when we sit on the couch only our heads remain visible. But is there really such a thing as too many pillows?
