Four Seasons Irome Pillows

When I got a chance to play with Irome, the new fabric collection from Kokka, I was inspired to try some quilty things.  And I’m sharing the two pillow covers I made over on the Kokka blog today!

I was inspired by the four seasons, represented by four different colorways, but I totally screwed up and got my seasons in the wrong order!  Oops!  😛  You can read all about it and more details about the fabric and pillows here.

Special shout out to Jessica, super quilt master mentor, who helped me figure out how to quilt the pillow cover above.  I don’t quilt often, but I had a ton of fun with these and I’m excited to try more!  Maybe improv next?

Oh!  And next week is Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day and I’m going to be giving away one of these pillow covers to a reader, so be sure to check back in for that!

And if you haven’t entered the Happy Homemade: Sew Chic Kids giveaway yet to win a Japanese sewing book translated to English, you have till Friday evening!  Don’t wait!

Ok – Kokka blog.  Go now.

A Winter White Project

Hello!  Today I’m over at Kojo Designs sharing a project for their Winter Whites series that they are co-hosting with Delia of Delia Creates.  These ladies also host of one of my favorite series, Color Your Summer, and as a companion, they came up with a series to celebrate wintery whites and neutrals.

Be sure to check out all the Winter White wonderfulness that has been going on at Delia Creates as well 🙂

And my question for you is . . .

featherstampsNow that I have these three hand carved feather stamps, what what WHAT should I do with them next?!  They can be used on fabric or paper.  I can imagine linen napkins, maybe some article of clothing?  Wall art?  What would you want to see these images on?
