Sew it : Patchwork pillow


After a short break  Sew it is back with a bang and a new look at Mayya’s blog Sew Chic and Unique.  It was fun voting for Sew it and this Wonky Pink Patchwork Pillow by Vanessa @ live laugh sew  got maximum votes.  I was very excited and happy to know the results, since past few days I had been bitten by the patchwork bug,  and have been trying my hands on patchwork stuff.  And as if I was attracting more of patchwork from the universe, Mayya also featured this one on Sew it.  Great…

Finally I dug through my scrap and assembled all my little fabrics together to make my  colorful - scrapful pillow……


I enjoyed making it since I love color, and also because I used up most of my scrap.   The back side of my pillow looks like this…


Here’s one more picture of my pillow, Oh !! Oh!!  Am I showing off too much?? 


Thank you Mayya, for this wonderful tutorial.  I am really getting good practice doing patchwork , before I join my Quilting classes this week.
