And now, the saga continues...
Jacey will be getting married soon. I know this because unlike some people i know, she actually planned this thing instead of just going out and doing it one day. so i had plenty of advance notice and I wanted to include a wedding gift in her package.
in addition to keeping pieced bits and bobs, i also have a bag of selvedges. i surprisingly have quite the collection. i guess i've been saving them for years and haven't really used them very much except for a few projects here and there. i've always wanted to try spiderweb blocks. i used the oh fransson tutorial and sized up the blocks. i used white kona for the foundation and added a blue shot cotton for the border. i believe i even managed to work in a couple of selvedges that i got from Jacey herself. i'm pretty sure it's an 18" pillow cover but i can't recall for certain.
the backing is a flora and fauna michael miller print. i made a lapped zip closure. the binding is a remix fabric. i cut it a little wider than normal because i thought it would be necessary with the bulk of the extra layer but i really could've done the normal 2.5".
i quilted in concentric circles using white gutermann thread. i think the lines are 1.5" apart. this is one of my very favorite quilting patterns for minis. maybe i will be brave enough to try it on a larger quilt someday.
i really loved making this pillow--enough so that i started some smaller selvedge blocks for myself right away. naturally i have since gotten distracted by new and shinier things. at any rate, congratulations to Jacey on her impending nuptials! i had great fun with this swap.
