I just love getting to hang out at Whipstitch with cool people and SEW for four uninterrupted hours (all you moms know exactly what I mean!). We had a lovely morning of sewing on Saturday, Melissa worked on a sweet little quilt, Theresa started a Schoolhouse Tunic (and inspired me to finally give one a try) and the rest of us made pillows. I made the front part for this pillow at home and quilted and assembled it on Saturday (including the invisible zipper).
The piecing of the front panel came from this quilt block tutorial on Two More Seconds and the invisible zipper tutorial came from Stitched in Color.
A few more great pillow tutorials:
pillow month round up from Sew Mama, Sew
How to make and insert piping in pillows from Sew Mama, Sew
Basic pillow construction (includes envelope closure guidelines) from Sew Mama, Sew
Are you getting the idea that Sew Mama, Sew rocks? Because yes, that is correct :-)
This week I'm working on a Daphne Tote from Artsy-Crafty Babe, I seriously need to get my 3x6 Blocks done AND the great garage clean-out NEEDS to get done...*sigh*. Less cleaning, more sewing, always my dream!
On an unrelated note, I just discovered that the broiler in our "new" oven works REALLY well...teehee.
