Finally, a Finish on a Friday, and a Tute to boot!

Finished up these sweet pillows with some FMQ this morning!
Carpenters Wheel Blocks, 14" Pillows
Too bad I only have one pillow form for the photo!
It has been hot and abnormally humid this month, so I have been reaching toward smaller projects, plus they give me some valuable Free Motion Quilting  practice. I was inspired to try this little diamond-line design after reading a review by ChristaQuilts of a Craftsy class she had taken with Angela Walters (Dot to Dot Quilting).
backside, oops I missed a few lines there.... hmmm
Now that I've given it a shot, I think I will use a similar pattern for the X's on my Purple Kisses Quilt, a QAL quilt I made with Christa several months ago.
I finished all the O's and have changed my mind several times for the centers and x's
I made up some kits for these pillow blocks, to sell at the upcoming Sew Street Market, a parking lot sale scheduled Oct 12th at Quiltique, in Henderson, NV. I collated these vintage fabrics from a quilt kit so that each kit makes two blocks, which I chose to use for pillows. I really love the pattern, and may cut some more, from Christmas fabrics, to list on Etsy as well. For now, my little kits are package up and ready to go to market:-)


Linking up today with Crazy Mom Quilts , Can I get a Whoop Whoop?,  & TGIFF

Because I am heading to First Friday, our monthly Artwalk/party in Vegas, I won't be able to surf the parties until tomorrow!
