More Opposites Attract Fun!

My newest Opposites + creation!

I made a pillow to enjoy on my yard swing with my morning coffee.

This was made with the  Opposites + Alternative Block

I made four blocks in alternating fabrics 
and made a 15" pillow block. 

I adding piping using this product ...

... Nancy's Notions.
It is a fusible piping cord that was easy to use 
following the package directions.

The piping fabric is from Ann Kelle's Remix collection 
and I did not have it when I started this project.
One of my favorite nearby quilt shops is
unfortunately closing its doors and I shopped their clearance sale.

I used the orange and blue dot fabric 
for the envelope style backing.

 I am having so much fun with this concept 
that I have fabric out for another
Opposite Attract project.  More soon!

  1. Cool quilt and pillow. Love your colors they are so summery.

  2. Pat, what a fun combination of colors/patterns! Love your work!

  3. This is not a combo I would use, but it does really pop with this pattern.

  4. I love your colors. Blue and orange has always been one of my favorites.

  5. opposites are working so well and the piping looks so good on the cushion gives such a professional finish have not mastered the art of it yet

  6. That pillow turned out great Pat! I really like that pattern. Can't wait to see your baby quilt you are making with it :)

  7. Okay, I have to admit that seeing block two in this pillow, and the way the blocks come together, makes it awfully appealing. Maybe I change my vote to block 2. LOL


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind word! :-)
