There is a type of quilt called a cathedral window, and I’ve always wanted to try it. It looks so hard! I couldn’t figure out how in the world they do it. I found a tutorial on Moda, they have a great website with free “recipes” for quilts. And it was a pillow so I thought well I can do that.
Here’s the link to the tutorial.
And here’s what I came up with:
First, I love this pillow, from a distance I think it looks pretty great. Up close… meh, it was my first one.
The fabric is from a line called Monaluna (who has an awesome blog, by the way…) and the pink and white are kona cotton. I got John to buy me a whole pile of this fabric for my birthday, the rest of it will be a new wave quilt by Oh Fransson, that one is in the works. Kate has alerady claimed this pillow, it looks sweet sitting on her bed. That girl is a sucker for pillows and blankets. =)
