Final Pillow

I have made a few things for my mom and dad last summer. I finally finished up the second pillow this past week.

The original pieces were three table toppers.

 And a matching pillow

Finally, I finished up a simple star pillow this past weekend. I made a few half square triangles and made a star.

Hexie Flowers

A couple of weeks ago I finished my hexagon flower wall hanging. I have been on a wall hanging kit so I can decorate my office walls at work.

I used each print of The Birds and Bees designed by Tula Pink.  I used a dark purple background from Kona.  I quilted the hexagons throughout the wall hanging.

I used left over pieces of the fat quarters to make the back and scrappy binding.   I love all fo the prints.

Get a Clue...Nancy Drew

I loved reading my moms Nancy Drew books when I was younger.  When Moda came out with the line inspired by Nancy Drew, I had to have it and I knew I had to make a wall hanging for my office.

I chose to use one of the book panels and border it with a white print and then the book prints around that.  When I quilted it, it became wonky, but I still love it.  I still have some scraps and 5 more book covers to do something with.

You can really see the wonkiness on the back.  At the beginning it was straight, I promise.

I am so into the toile print from inside the covers of the books.  I should get more if I can find it.

Random...can you do it?

Yesterday I saw a cute baby quilt on V and Co. website.  I thought it would be a perfect compliment to my hexie table runner.  I wanted something to compliment the randomness and I wanted to see if I could be random.

For those of us that plan, being random can be scary and we push against it hard.

I created two different kinds of 9 patch blocks out of 3.5 inch squares.  One block was 9 printed fabrics pieced together and the second block is a simple white star block.

All together it turned out wonderful.

And see how well it works with the other table runner. They will both be used to cover the dressers in my bedroom.
