Tasha Noel and Riley Blake Designs with you!!
I have been a fan of Tasha Noel's fabric since the very first time I laid my eyes on The Simple Life. I recently used my very last scrap of that adorable fabric and was sad. But not for long. Tasha asked if I would like to be a part of the blog tour, and I instantly knew what I wanted to make!
These prints are so perfect for fussy cutting, and I knew that a cathedral window pillow would be the perfect project. I used the awesome tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Company for the pillow. I started out with 3 1/2" squares because I wanted all of the cute designs to be a part of the fussy cutting. I think I prefer this method of cathedral windows as it is easier to get your points to line up and almost no chance of raw edges popping through. I used Pellon SF-101 on the backside of the panel to keep things nice and neat and give more structure to the pillow front. The polka dot fabric is Swiss Dots by Riley Blake.
The back of the pillow is a standard envelope enclosure and the pillow finishes at 18" square.
Once I finished the pillow, I really wanted to make another Moda Love Quilt. I used a combination of Pixie Noel and coordinating Riley Blake basics and cut them into charm size squares.
I used my most favorite method of quilting which is stitch 22 on my Brother machine, and stitched about 1" apart. I LOVE the texture it gives my finished projects. I may never quilt another way!!
I still need to add the cute striped binding and love the way this looks in my daughter's room, but I think this will look so cute as either a baby quilt for a Christmas baby or as a fun table topper for your dining room!
