Things around here have been a bit, shall we say, hectic. Then we went and got a little, um, exhausted. During this time, Jess and I decided to take a break from things we had to do, to make something we wanted to. Mine is small, her's is huge. We have yet to get good photos of hers, so today it's just mine.
By the way, if you don't yet use pinterest please, please do so. It's such a cool resource for keeping yourself organized. Of course it is also addictive. You need an invite (or you have to wait for a few days) but that's not a problem, just email me and I'll send you an invite!
So anyway, I wanted a small pillow for back support but I couldn't just make a plain cover. Then Jennifer pinned a huge wonky star quilt and made her own mini quilt. That finally sent me over the edge and I knew I how I had to make my cover.
I did this on a whim so didn't really think it through. In an effort to use what I have, I went to the scrap bins. I finally used my "Go" cutter that my hubby got me for my birthday. Did I tell you that? Hm. Anyway, 48 little squares cut out in about five minutes. Yes, thank you! I decided to put them on point and just started sort of free piecing the sashing around the blocks. Mostly because I had a tiny bit of the Kona ash left to use. I can't actually believe it worked. All I had left was two small triangles
I love it. I may have to eventually make a whole quilt like this.......someday.
