It’s a verb you know? Or at least it will be in my modern log cabin pillow class at Drygoods. I managed to make two and stick to the perimeters of the 20×20 square I taped out on my design wall. I always want to do more or go large. My hope is after the class students will feel the same.
Weird as it is, I started my colors for this project from a zipper pull. My go to neutral, Alexander Henry Heath and Michael Miller Cotton Couture grays were a natural match to that candy green.
I started with what I’ll call the Quarter Turn Pillow. Looks complicated, but it is just four blocks placed together. Jacquie’s matchstick quilting almost killed me. It took me all day, I can’t imagine doing it on a quilt, but its outcome was stellar. Then when all was said and done I wished I had done the same matchstick quilting on the other pillow too.
Tunnel Vision is a log cabin block from our book Quilting Modern. I have one more I wanna make of course to add to this set (something about the number three). Log cabins have endless possibilities and with everyone in class doing their own improv thing there will be lots of examples.
Both got an invisible zipper done my way. I love a perfect pillow.
Though Jefe would like these to stay on our couch he’s getting Alexander Henry Anime Ninja girls instead.
