It’s me, Jayme, aka “Finding Sweet Land” in the quilting community, back on the Shannon Fabrics blog!! We have officially entered spring!! Even if it doesn’t quite feel like it yet. That did not stop me from starting on some spring projects this past week. One of the projects I had planned was painted pillows backed in Cuddle®.
Spring? What spring?! It’s me, Jayme, aka “Finding Sweet Land” in the quilting community, back on the Shannon Fabrics blog. This past week I thought we were on the up and up here in Eastern Idaho. The temps were getting into the 40’s and we were getting lots of rain. The showers had about taken away 90% of the snow on the ground and it smelled like spring. I love the smell of rain after months of snowing. I had a spring post planned for the coming weeks, but the past two days we’ve gotten another foot of snow here (also expecting snow all week next week) and all I want to do is jump back in my bed with all of my Cuddle® blankets.
Polly from Pieces by Polly back again with another fun pillow project for you. I’ve always LOVED how Cuddle® bindings look on quilts, so on a whim I decided to try adding a regular quilt binding to some Cuddle® pillows…and my new favorite way of making pillows was born. It’s a great way to add a contrasting Cuddle® fabric. A solid color Cuddle® binding can help keep a busy print grounded…or a Cuddle® print can add a bit more interest to a plainer looking pillow.
This method works equally well for large or small or custom shaped pillows.
The gift for the Fancy person in your life, perhaps that person might even be you. In my case I will have to say that I might be a little fancy because I really couldn’t wait to make a Luxe Fur Throw!! Enter Shannon Fabrics Snow Leopard Faux Fur!!
