During the holiday and Spring Break vacation I didn't find much time to sew, besides whipping up Etsy orders of course, so yesterday when I found a stretch of sewing time to turn last week's fabric bundle of love into a pillow to share here today, it felt great!
This fabric pull full of moody blues and soft peach was inspired by the Moonrise colorway of my new collection Nightfall, minus the mustard yellow which I now wish I would have added in just a little. This is my favorite Nightfall colorway of the two -- minty aqua, peachy pink, smoky blues, and slate gray, I love it all!
Because sewing time was limited, I cut just a couple narrow strips from each fabric in the bundle and made a Quick Quilt As You Go Herringbone pillow for a quick, satisfying finish!
For some fun, added texture I decided to leave the frayed denim edge exposed!
This denim is from Art Gallery Fabrics new line, The Denim Studio by AGF, and it really is so beautiful! I incorporated my favorite colors into this pillow -- Indigo Shadow, Cool Foliage, Frosted Sage, and Nectarine Sunrise. These solid denims play so well with my Nightfall collection, you'll be seeing lots more of these denims combines with my prints in the weeks ahead once I start preparing for Spring Quilt Market!
For the pillow backing, I used a heavier, more sturdy denim, Evergreen in Slate. Again, letting the frayed salvage edge show. I love the look of it and it made for a super fast finish!
I used more of the Hello, Bear Summit in Twilight print for my binding. The colors perfectly matched those within my pillow!
I plan to add this pillow, along with a few more new items & scrap bags to my Etsy shop soon. If you're interested you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime! I'm planning to phase out making the Birthday Crowns this next month, so if you've ever wanted one - be sure to get your order in soon!
