Making Gifts

Hello Everyone,
I feel like I'm a pillow making factory here at the cabin.  I'm making pillow tops out of the Forever Green line of fabric by Holly Taylor.

I'm cutting the center 4-1/2" for a 4" finished center. Don't you love the plaid flange!

Then I make 32, 1" Y-squares to place in the second border which gives it a nice look.  You can watch my Y-square video on The Quilt Show by clicking HERE.  If you are interested in the Patchwork Math book, it is located HERE in my Etsy store. The pillow is more of a Winter design so I can get many months of use.  I have also thought about stitching three of the 18" x 18" pillow tops together to make a table runner.  We'll see just how much time I have to pull that one off!

 The fabric line comes with this panel.  I'll whip 24 of these pillows up in the next few days......right?

It really is a nice fabric line.  Just perfect for cabin life.  Now if I just had time to make one for me!

Happy Sunday,



  2. So lovely. Yes, I do love the look of the plain flange. I must become more adventurous and use some plaids in my quilts.

  3. I'm starting the stopwatch now, Lynn! These are just adorable and I'll be first in line at your Etsy store for the pattern!

  4. These are beautiful. The plaids flange and the Y squares really make it special!

  6. Oh Those Holly Taylor Prints! I swear I can be standing in a shop with my back to them and they reach out and tap my shoulder!
