Don't you just love the pop that these pillows give to a room?!! Well, now you, too can add some zest to your decor by entering to win the Canvas Pattern, below. The pattern is sized for everything from pincushions like Debbie from A Quilter's Table made (I can't get a picture of these adorable pincushions to load, but you can check them out thru the link, it's worth it).
To King size for Quilts or things in between like these delights:
I wanted to make a pillow in Lori Holt's Vintage Happy as a part of the Finish Along over at The Littlest Thistle, but instead chose to make a pillow from the Canvas pattern to compliment the Bee Inspired Quilt that I made to celebrate Spring and Bees. You can read all about that, here :)
I'm a big fan of envelope backs on pillows as they make the pillow sturdier and seem to work out better for me in the wash. It has nothing to do with a fear of putting in zippers, really. No, really.
Ok, so it does, but I'll be over that soon!
I began with this pile of scraps
Then pieced them as per the pattern, with a little juggling of yellows along the way,
Then matchstick quilted the pillowtop and chose a golden yellow back to continue the summer sunshine theme. And to shop from the stash, which is just getting out of hand. But, that's not a bad problem to have, right??
Then Cut my backing, overlapped my sides to make the envelope (tutorial on how to do this), and sewed the whole shebang together.
Giveaway closed. But you can still get the pattern on Leanne's website, www.shecanquilt.ca
