|Pillow Case Cuff: Mary Koval Paradise Garden Patt: 22270|
Cobalt blue and white are so crisp together.
I saw the combo on Reproduction Fabrics website. As of this second - the pattern is on sale. This would be nice with one of the new pillar prints! This blue is ?? years old.
This is another of my quilts where I used extra backing fabric to make a pair of pillow cases.
This quilt stuck in my mind for quite a while.
I think this blue is kind of wild, which made it fun to use.
The nine patches were from an online swap. I think there are very few repeats in the fabrics.
It is machine pieced and I machine quilted it.
The binding is a stripe that wasn't a co-ordinate but I love striped bindings.
Detail of the pillar with machine quilting.
I quilted following the patterns in the pillar print.
Here is a shot of Ms. Poodle without her scissors...I mean glasses...
She sits on her pin cushion base with the sweetest face. Lovely lashes.
She's a Lefton Spaghetti Poodle pin cushion/scissor holder made in Japan.
Here's a detail of the bottom and another angle of the pin box.
Imagine a time when pins were expensive.
The needle case is carved bone.
The top is threaded.
When I finished the quilt I wasn't sure I liked it. The pillar is so different from the others I have.
It's grown on me. Different is sometimes a great thing.
Ever finish a quilt - and like at more years later?
