Persian Plum Pillow

Standard

This is a fun week! I just posted about the great vintage apron I received from Moosewood Vintage, and now I am the lucky recipient of ANOTHER blogging give-away . . . this gorgeous Persian Plum quilt block kit from Books Quilts and Sewing! And, Michael (the quilter) added a $5 gift card to Michaels (the store) to the package . . . what a lovely surprise!  Truthfully, I’d never pieced a quilt block before, but I knew it would be perfect for a pillow so I eagerly dove in. It was sort of like putting a puzzle together . . . and I soon learned that when the directions say to press, DO IT! Here’s my beautiful new pillow, featured in a back porch photo shoot.  Oh, and Michael has ANOTHER give-away going on right now . . . you have until July 7 to enter. Click here for information, and plan to stay a bit to browse his blog. Thanks, Michael! :)

    • Thank you, little sister! Coming from a seasoned quilter, that’s a huge compliment! :) I actually hand-basted everything before using the sewing machine so the pieces hopefully wouldn’t slip around. I have a new admiration for people who make whole quilts this way! :) xoxo

  1. Very pretty! It gives me an idea for my fireplace hearth which is raised and a bit of concern when my toddling grandson comes over. If I make a few of them to cover the sharp edges, I’d worry less.

  2. So glad you liked my post which eventually led me to your blog! I love trying new projects and you are obviously gifted! Waaaa Hoooo! I’m stoked!
