Hello Fall Blog Hop ~ My Day!


Hello, Fall ~ Welcome to my Scrapatch! 

I have two new pillow covers to show you today
that I made from fabrics from my stash.


Quilty Kitty Katniss has approved this project.
Here are the four pieces I sewed to make these two sided pillow covers.

I found these fabrics a year or so ago at one of my favorite online shops,


 The little deer leaping through the sunset trees is still available,
as are the textured yellow, green and terra cotta orange fabrics.


The focus print is not, but if you want info on the fabric,
contact Bernie and she may be able to help. 
Here is the selvage info. 


I started this project on National Sew A Jelly Roll Day 
The piecing was made easy using my 

Cozy Quilt Designs Strip Tube Ruler

I find this free printout very helpful when using this ruler.

Here is the layout for the pillow top center.

Then I added  2.5" border strips. 

Sample Idea: 

This setting could also be used to set any 12.5" block on point.


The large pillow is 21" square, plus binding.
and covers an old european bed pillow. 

Then I used the reverse triangles and the end pieces to make a scrappy front
 to cover an old 13.5" by 19.5" pillow.


I used leftover strips and a rectangle of the focus print of the back of the small pillow.


I used my plastic snap plier to add decorative and functional closures
to the envelope backs.

Great pillows. You just finished a pillow in a way that I was considering. Kind of looks like you just bound it?

Love hour snap closures. Great idea.

Wow, you sure know how to cover a pillow is style. That first one really caught my eye. I have a puzzle game on my Ipad that I play daily. The center of your pillow looks a lot like some of the puzzles I've been putting together lately. LOL!!
