I finally made this fun rose pillow from the June issue of Better Homes and Gardens Quilts and More magazine. I just loved the Moda Etching by 3 Sisters fabric and this seemed like a perfect project to use it.
The petals are 3-dimensional and made by fusing two pieces of fabric together, then cutting them into circles. Sewing the 90 plus fabric circles onto the background fabric is a little tricky but they don’t have to be perfect and in the end it looks like a rose bloom! I plan to put my pillow on the front porch chair. It will make a perfect accent!
The sample’s in the shop, so check it out next time you’re there.
If you like the look of 3-dimensional flowers, check out Quilting Daily for a tutorial.
Many thanks and much appreciation goes to the women who work diligently each month to make quilts for those in wheel chairs. Kudos go to: Yvonne, Mary T., Fran, Joan, Mary Ellen, Barb, Lee Ann, Nancy, Mary.
Quilting for Kids With Cancer
Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
This blog is dedicated to the women and men of West Michigan who would like to attend the Attic Window Quilt Classes. This is where you can see the class samples and pictures of the teachers.
