September 2012

September Pillow
I've enjoyed the summer here in Seattle. My first summer in a long time in the northwest. It was/is very nice. Over 40 days without rain, then the streak was broken by just a little bit of rain. I still had to water the flower beds. I'm not ready for summer to be over, but I know the fall will be great too. I did get out my 'September' pillow.

Pillow back
The 16" pillow fits my pillow form and I rotate seasonally or monthly.

This one is done with 12- 4" log cabin blocks and four 2"X 8" plain blocks that are embroidered with grass like designs.

I used some homespuns that I had in my stash plus a few calicos. The back is pieced and uses yo-yo type covered buttons. Covered cord surrounds the edges. Of course the front is hand quilted. My favorite thing to do!

This one isn't in my book, House Party Coordinated Quilts and Pillows, but the pillow construction methods are the same as the ones in the book.
