Well, I turned on the sewing machine and made a pillow! This started as a quilt top, but being the practical person I am, I cut it into pillows because that’s what I need most right now. This is a simple half log cabin design turned at a 45 degree angle. I mixed the linen cotton blend of my fabric with shot cotton and some Kona solids. For those of you who haven’t quilted with linen or linen blends yet, I find Kokka’s fabric really great to work with because it doesn’t pull or become distorted like thinner linens. Wrinkles are not a problem and I almost never pre-wash it.
This pillow is visiting Intown Quilters here in Atlanta, so you can head over there and see some of my Stamped collection from Kokka. I have a shipment of fabric on its way to me now, so I hope to make some new things with it soon to give you project ideas. If you’ve made something with the Stamped collection, I’d love for you to add it to The Long Thread photo pool over on flickr.
