Too many scraps make me nervous. Seriously. My space for scraps is very limited in these jars, and I tend to put bigger pieces of fabric back with the actual yardage and sometimes I ask myself when is fabric scrap?
Anyway, I had a few smaller scraps of the beautiful '2wenty Thr3e' fabric by Cosmo Cricket left over from my October quilt and I juts needed to make a pillow out of them.
I added lots of beige as I had tons of little strips left over too. I did straight line quilting in beige and mustard and also added a
mustard coloured piping, that just gives the pillow a nice frame.
I'm not that happy with the piping though. I chose a very thick cording and it was very difficult to make nice corners. Also the structure of the cording is kind of visible... hm, will not do that again.
Instead of this pillow I had actually planned to make another Christmas table runner, but that didn't happen.
And I learned that when creativity strikes you have to give in and just do it.
This is my last project for 2015. I'm working on a quilt right now but I don't think I will be able to finish it this week. This will be on my To-Do-List for 2016!
Linking this to Crazy Mom Quilts on a Monday!
