Last week I took a quick trip to SAS for some elastic and found this 3/8 of a yard Amy Butler print. For $1.50 I took it home and turned it into a pillow. You can’t tell from the pic, but I trimmed it in brown piping to match the couch. This is the first time I’ve made a pillow for my living room….and, I really really love it!
I keep pinning star quilts on pinterest, I really like the look of the quilted 8 point star. I googled around and kept finding tutorials for the wonky star- which I didn’t want, I wanted a true star. I Finally learned it was called a Saw Toothed Star, after a little bit of math I cut and stitched one up.
I’ll be listing it in the shop today or tomorrow for $8, unless you email me now and tell me you want it. I found the star to be quick to stitch up and am thinking about tackling a throw quilt….after I finish the baby’s quilt (the one I’ve been working on for almost 2 years now!).
On an unrelated note, I overheard my kids discussing the difference between a fart and a toot this morning before school. There were sound effects. It was hilarious!!
