Hi Dear Friends! Somewhere last month I thought that it’s time to make a new pillow. Trying to keep my colour palet smaller, wasn’t easy. Curves are easier than expected.
I drew the templates on my own. Because I haven’t done very much curves, this was also exercise and I cut the outside piece big enough to have space to trim if needed.
Okey, I could have trimmed the blocks smaller but I trimmed them as big as possible.
That meant that the ‘flower petals’ didn’t meet, which doesn’t really matter, but made me continue.
I wanted so much to add other colours for the leaves but then stayen in my plan and picked blues.
I cut the leaves just free with scissors. With the hera marker I made line where I should turn the seam allowance and then I basted them. If you make the line with hera marker on the back side, it helps to turn the seam allowance. You can see the line a little bit on the dark leave down right.
Leaves are ‘needle turn applique’ which is quite easy and you can find many tutorials from youtube and pinterest.
Spring is here and even we have now few rainy days, last two weeks were warm and beautiful! Yellow spring flower from a friend … clearing the long greens from the garden made birds happy …
… mountain view from my sewing room … with some shadows of clouds …
For the quilting (by hand) I made several circles in the centre. Then I made other circles outside (using kitchen bowl to mark them).
I’m joining Kelly’s link party ‘Needle and Thread Thursday’.
Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments! Have a beautiful day!
