Here it is, the last Friday of September.
I had to wait awhile to show this pillow, as it was a gift for Charlotte's birthday. I used a great pattern by Alissa Haight Carlton. I wanted to match the forest green of the cushion cover I sewed for her reading loft.
While Meadowland is a quilt pattern that has been extremely popular, I have never made it. I had a stack of this (really old) "quilter's linen" by Robert Kaufman that I have incorporated here and there. I decided to make a fall version of Meadowland, and ordered some gold Painter's Palette fabric (my favorite solid fabric, when I'm not sewing with Oakshott) in "turmeric."
The gold is pretty intense, but I'm happy with it. And the visual texture of the fabric makes me so happy.
I finished two projects this week.
First is a crocheted afghan for Gabe. He chose blues, and I chose the Cosy Stripe pattern by Attic 24. It turned out great.
