Last Design Wall Monday of August--see more design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog.
On my design surface is a new project, because having 24 or 30 projects just isn't enough, am I right? This is a seasonal pillow designed by Kristina of Center Street Quilts, and she is having a sew along on IG for her Gobble It Up design. The pillow appeared in the Quilts and More Fall 2019 magazine and is available as a download from her Etsy shop. I linked to her website above.
Kristina noted in the magazine that her kids were always concerned when animals she designed did not have eyes, so she added button eyes to her pillow. There was a lot of stash searching, scrap cutting, and counting and recounting to get all the pieces ready. My turkey will be very colorful. The orange scroll fabric will either be the backing or the binding, or both.
Although I was sure I'd cut the right number of pieces, one of the feather flying geese brown pieces turned up missing so I had to cut another. While searching for missing piece on the cutting table, I came across the first set of leg pieces I had cut that had gone missing. Always a mystery when I'm cutting!
We had a lovely introductory visit with our new grandson and his proud parents at their place last week. We brought up dinner and got to hold the dear boy (while masked up).
He was crashed out after feeding and very relaxed. The little family is trying to get into a routine--there have been a few nights of little sleep, especially for Mama. I got a pic of the cushions they had me make new covers for.
Over the weekend I spent a lot of time making more masks; our Guild is still collecting them for donation. Lots of larger scraps and chunks were devoted to this effort.
