I wanted to give my daughter some couch pillows for her new home as a Christmas gift. She is an absolute doggie person. She has three... 2 huskies and a chauwaha.
The applique art I found determined the size of the pillows. The chauwaha was a head shot and the husky was full body. After some consideration I decided to do an Andy Worhol approach to the chauwaha and of course I wasn't going to buy any fabric - relying on my stash. My daughters living room is blue based so a blue background - main color was in order.
|12" finished blocks. The pillow will be 24" with a piping detail finish.|
Found some 60's psychedelic prints and incorporated them.
|The background here is one of most favorate Amy Butler designs.|
I found the applique patterns on line at FourTwinSisters.com. Thery have several fabilous quilt patterns available for free, all they ask for is "barter"... quilt fabric, notions or items you do not want or need.
|Her dog, Lelu, has a heart shape on her forehead.|
Now these are works in process, alot of details are still missing, I just started on them yesterday.
I have not been blogging much lately - not to say I have not been sewing. I made a bunch of Egyptian costumes for the Muzeo in Anaheim...(where I volunteer as a docent).
The new King Tut display is there now until January 24th.
Kids can dress up and see the exhibit, it makes it a more memorial experience.
