I was at my friend Pam's a couple of weeks ago, doing some shopping and choosing some fabrics for our weekly curated bundles, when I put these fabrics together for our latest bundle, Glitter and Gold. We were so excited about this combination that we felt a contest was in order. Who wouldn't want to win these? I had to have a bundle of my own, so Pam packed me up some fat eighths and sent me on my way. Only there was a catch. I had to make something.
I poured over Pinterest and this perfect pillow tutorial by Cori of Let's Eat Grandpa caught my eye. Yes. That was it. These fabrics were destined to become this pillow. I've never done quilt-as-you-go before, so it was quite the feat. I'm not sure I like it more than regular quilting, but that is yet to be determined. Maybe I just need more practice.
I have yet to put the backing fabric for the pocket section on, but I just couldn't wait to share my accomplishment with you.
Do you know what you'd make with these fabrics? Want a chance to win your very own fat eighth bundle of Glitter and Gold? Head to Mad About Patchwork's blog and tell us your idea. It's that easy. Easier even than sewing this pillow cover...
