Hi, I’m Leisha! I come from a family of quilters. I am a longarm machine quilter and my aunt Kristin is a fabric shop owner. She owns the online shop, Sisters & Quilters, with my mother Sandra. I’m lucky that they are both talented pattern designers and I enjoy working with them. So… you can imagine how thrilled we were when we were asked to collaborate on this “Giddy Up” quilt. And to top things off, we were even more thrilled to have it published in the fall Oct/Nov issue of “Quilt” magazine!
The project tutorial shows you how to make 3 different classic pillow covers:
- Square with piecing
- Round with gusset
This detailed tutorial was designed especially for us by our talented friend Denise at Whimsy Couture Boutique Sewing Patterns. You can download it from our website here at no charge. For this project, Denise used Majestic, a Shannon Studio Collection ™. This stunning Cuddle collection was inspired by the magical shores of Morocco. Denise chose styles from the collection with the spicy tones of crimson, honey and scarlet. To browse the entire Majestic collection, click on this link.
If you like these pillows, we also have a beautiful coordinating quilt pattern, Marrakech. You can download it by following this link.
Which pillow do you like the best?
We’d like to congratulate All People Quilt on reaching the halfway point of the One Million Pillowcase Challenge. To help celebrate, we are participating in their exciting blog hop. The blog hop showcases the winning pillowcase pattern selected from the APQ Pinterest Voting Contest. For more about the contest, see below.
Here is the pillowcase we made from the winning pattern: Pillowcase Pattern #32 – Train Pillowcase
The pillowcase was made using Chevrons & ZigZags from our Cuddle Prints Collection, mixed with a few solids and other prints. For the body, we used Cuddle 3 Turquoise from our Kozy Cuddle Solids Collection. For the border, we used ZigZag – Turquoise/Red/Black. And, for the train cars we used a combination of solids, prints, and more of the same ZigZag that was used in the border.
And, just for fun, this is an image of our train pillowcase that we originally made for the challenge. To find out more, please view our post here on this pillowcase and the challenge reaching its halfway mark.
Here is the background for this exciting blog hop. APQ had a Pinterest Pillowcase voting contest in July. They choose their 20 favorite pillowcase patterns from the One Million Pillowcase Challenge and made a Pinterest board. Starting July 1, they had readers vote for their favorites by repinning the pattern they liked to their own boards. Click here to see the Pinterest board. At the end of July, the pattern with the most repins was declared the winner. That pattern is featured in the blog hop!

We will be donating our pillowcase to a local charity for children in Utah. Won’t you help by making and donating some pillowcases?
Hi, everyone! I’m Veronica, and I’m guest posting from my blog, sewVery, where I share pattern reviews, all the outfits I make my four-year-old daughter as well as purses and other sewing and crafty projects that I put together. I rediscovered sewing just two years ago, and since then, I can’t go a day without thinking of my next project!
When a dear friend asked me to make a few baby items for her to give as gifts, I jumped at the chance to make something with the Terry Cloth and Cuddle Chevrons & ZigZags from Shannon Fabrics. I used Terry Cloth in Snow White and Chevron in Red/ Snow. Both are so soft and were a dream to sew!
Today, I’m sharing my tutorial on how to make your own terry and Cuddle burp cloth with an embroidered monogram or decorative design. Let’s get started!
Hi! I’m Denise from Whimsy Couture and I blog over at Whimsy Couture Boutique. I’m excited to tell you about the new tutorial I created for Shannon Fabrics, how to make a Cuddle Covered Container.
I designed this storage container because I needed a place for my extra sewing supplies. And, I didn’t want another rubber tote. So, I thought, how about making an attractive fabric covered box? It’s lightweight, easy to store, and looks cute in my sewing room too!
You can make the storage box with or without a covered lid. I made both. For the first, I used Spice Market Spice Goddess Basil. To see the entire collection of Spice Market, a Shannon Studio Collection, click here.
You can download the free project tutorial by clicking on this link.
What would you store in this container? If you make one, don’t forget to tag your Instagram and Facebook pictures with #Cuddlecontainer so we can all see what you made! And, be sure to visit my blog Whimsy Couture Boutique to see my other tutorials and patterns.
