I always enjoy pairing random rainbow fabrics and low volume prints. It was also nice to work in a bit of brown, which can often be a neglected color in my stash. These warm brown tones for the bear paw corners feel like autumn, and I love the contrast with the other colors.
I chose a flowered teapot for the center of the pillow. It came from a darling vintage greeting card print that I bought from Sunny Day Supply -- so much cuteness!
I quilted 1/8" from either side of the low volume strips in the blocks and in the center. The back of the pillow is a canvas print from Cotton + Steel that falls somewhere between gray and brown.
It's hard to let go of a project that you love, but it's a whole lot easier when you know it's going to live with a dear friend.
I just wanted to say that I absolutely love your Big Bear Cabin Pillow pattern. Your combination of colors and fabrics really set the pattern off in a totally new direction than the traditional version, and it makes my head spin in a great way. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought of using your combinations together, but you have certainly inspired me to try to think outside the box more often. Thanks so much for sharing this!ReplyDelete
