Desert Bloom Fabric: Pillows & More

Happy Thursday! Today I'm sharing a few of the little projects I did for the booth. I can't wait to use them at home after market! 


First up is this patchwork pillow. I used my scrappy patchwork pillow tutorial
you can find here. I did make one change and just added a 2 1/2" border all around the large patchwork section. This made my finished pillow 14" x 14" instead of 16" x 16".

Chelsi had the idea to make one of Amy's free pillow tutorials using Desert Bloom 2 1/2" squares for the patchwork. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to embroider our  selvedge quote..."Nature's beauty brings joy to the soul." I sure love how this one turned out, too!



I also made a hexagon pillow (pattern from my first book, A Quilting Life: Creating a Handmade Home). I used black Moda Crossweave for the background and absolutely love it with these fabrics (the lighting is a little bright in this photo).




Finally, my friend Gail makes these beautiful folded star pot holders...she made three of them for me to hang in the booth...and I think I might need to redecorate my whole kitchen to match them after market!


Today we'll be busy setting up our booth and attending a few Schoolhouse sessions. Market opens tomorrow...I can't wait!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love how different everything looks, even though it uses the same fabric line. By just changing the background, it gives a whole new look!

The pillows and fabrics are adorable. They would make great summer pillows to add cuteness to any space! Thanks so much for the tutorial.
