Free Tutorial: True Love Pillow

Image
This week on the Thermoweb blog, I'm sharing a tutorial on how to make a very easy & fast throw pillow!  I love decorating for Valentine's day and this pillow is a really quick way to add something special to a room.

The hearts are fused on with Heat n Bond Lite and then stitched down with a straight stitch, which makes this a quick project!

Riley Blake Designs Blog Tour- Love Letters

Hi, Everyone!  Today is my turn on the Riley Blake Designs Blog Tour for Love Letters by Lindsay Wilkes

I love this vintage valentine-inspired collection and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a heart quilt.  I bought the pattern for Down Memory Lane by Aqua Paisley Studio a year or so ago but didn't make it yet so it was perfect for this!  I loved making these hearts in all gorgeous prints in this collection!



I had this quilt quilted by Quilting by David with the Hearts on Hearts pantograph.  I love how the hearts interlock!




For the Background, I used Confetti Cottons Riley White (C120-RILEYWHITE).  For the backing, I used Riley Blake White Swiss Dots on Red (C670-80 RED).  Swiss dots are a favorite of mine and they come in so many colors that they always work really nicely as a backing.


And here is a look at the whole quilt-


Now that I've cleaned up Christmas, I'm starting to get Valentine's day decorations out and I'm re…

Block of the Week- The Odette Quilt- Information Post

Image
Hi, Everyone!  I've decided to run a Block of the Week in the New Year!  To me, there is no better way to start a new year than with a new project :)  

I will be hosting a free Block of the Week here on my blog.  I'll be posting two blocks per week for 10 weeks and in the 11th week, I'll give sashing and finishing information.

The Block of the Week will start January 9th.  Here is the schedule that we will follow.

UPDATE: I pushed the QAL back one week from January 2nd to January 9th because I was getting lots of requests to start a little later because people were still waiting on their fabric.
