So, let’s start the quilting small. I figure, I made a quilted pillow (sort-of) before. I can do it again. I bought a bunch of cheap (on-sale) fat quarters at Jo-Ann’s to start with since I have no stash. I don’t want to mess up on some fancy beautiful designer fabric.
I got straight to work and finished the pillow tops:
I must say, they don’t look horrible. They are for the living room. We have one green wall and the rest are yellow. I just made up a pattern and I’m going to fill them with some poly-fil. I have to make another trip to the fabric store because I have no batting…
So, I decided to learn how to make a zippered pouch. I’ve only ever put in a zipper once on a skirt and it looked ridiculous. I watched a helpful tutorial and woo hoo! It worked!
I think I’m getting the hang of my sewing machine. After the pillows are done I think I may actually tackle a baby quilt.
