I saw snow today and its been freezing cold the last few nights so a little spring is needed! I was sick for challenge #5 so I took my idea of a pillow case using my two Swoon quilt scraps and made it fit this weeks challenge. My inspiration came from a vintage tree of life quilt block in my collection.
I felt it was the perfect fit for my scraps, many of which were already cut into triangles. No measurements were taken. I just laid out the scraps I had and cut them to fit.
Then I played with the arrangement of colors. Borders came from left over strips I cut in half lengthwise. I went to my Denyse Schmidt stash and pulled a white on dark pink/red pin dot in home dec from her Country Fair line. It matched nicely with the dark pink on the front and contrasted with the gray Hope Valley outer border.
I quilted it with a wiggle zig zag setting and my walking foot.
I made this second pillow case to cover my other winter pillow. I got rid of the other old worn out pillows that used to be on my couch. Plus it elimates the need to store the pillows. I just dont have the space. I still have a few small pillows to cover yet. Here is the other pillow I made from challenge #4.
