Finish: Vulgarity and Lace (Accent Pillow)

Long story short: The background grey fabric I started using isn’t being carried by my local quilt shop anymore, so I got something else, and turned the half block I had already sewn into this pillow.

I think it’s cute. Also, I am happy that I designed my Fuck Off block in such a way that if someone wanted to just have a block reading “Fuck” instead of “Fuck Off,” it totally works. It’s like two patterns in one! One of these days I’ll start a pattern shop.

Anyway, this is what I accomplished today. (Well, I designed two more patterns this weekend too, but I didn’t test sew yet.)

Little pillow measures approximately 6.5 x 11.

I have the classiest, most elegant home furnishings around and I know you’re jealous.

Finish: An April Mini

Well…

I hoped to start an April mini today, and I powered through and finished an April mini today. My quilt stand won’t be naked next month – hooray!

The pattern is called “Spring Fling Mini 2015” and it’s by JmzB Quilts. You can get it for free at Craftsy by clicking here.

It didn’t take long to put together at all. I even got a little creative with the quilting! Instead of doing my standard straight lines, I added little raindrops. Admittedly, halfway through quilting, I started thinking they looked like little nooses and not rain, but whatever. It’s still cute.

It’s approximately 11.75 x 13.5. I’m pretty sure that will still fit on my quilt stand. The stand is in my office at work, so I’ll find out tomorrow.

That’s my first finish of 2017.
