blue & grey – another pillow

Quilted pillow covers are quickly becoming my new favourite presents to give. Over the weekend I made one for my little brother. I tried to make it as boyish as possible, pulling from my blue and grey stash.

I went with simple HSTs because they’re quick to make and I love the piecing process.

A quilted pillow cover might not seem like a go-to gift for a male turning sixteen, but he’s a bit of a maker himself, so I hope he’ll appreciate and most of all like it.

I had a Denyse Schmidt print that fitted so well with the colour scheme. I think it makes a great backing, it called for a grid quilting pattern! I’m still getting used to my new found love for Denyse’s fabric, so that might play into my appreciation ;-)

And I put my pillow zipper closure method to use again. I’m so happy I figured this out, so quick, such a clean finish. Sorry for keep going on about this…

So that’s it. I don’t get a lot of sewing done at the moment, as I’m preoccupied with other things, but whenever I do, I try to share. I’m looking forward to our September vacation, where I plan to pack my EPP stuff.

    Hi Vicky! what a gorgeus pillow! Beautiful fabrics and I love the hst blocks – my favourites! I think this is very good present for a man. They like to use pillows on the sofa as we do. x Teje
