Long time no post!

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! Long time no post! As some of you know i haven’t been feeling very well which has been getting in the way of my crafting, big time. Lucky me, I get this entire week off of work – I hope to start feeling better soon so i can get some quilting in during my week off.

I’m off to a so-so start, as I managed to finish the embroidery pillow I started in early June. It turned out great AND it’s my very first embroidery project ever!
And the back of the pillow is just as cute as the front. I really love this colorway of olives, grays, aquas and reds…i know it’s still summer but it’s getting me excited for Fall! I guess I can’t help it being from Seattle 🙂
I made this pillow using pre-cut 2.5″ squares, also known as “crumbs”. You can also make it by quartering a charm square.
This lovely line called “Little Apples” by Aneela Hoey will be released by Moda this Fall. And yes, I will be selling this line as soon as Quilting in the Rain, the shop, is open. 🙂 I’ve been a busy bee ordering a substantial collection of pre-cut inventory and working on the website with a goal to have the online shop open by this Fall, if not sooner! With all that’s been going on, this Summer has been going by too fast! Stay tuned for more updates. 🙂
That’s it for now…just a quick post to show you what’s up at Quilting in the Rain.

Happy Quilting!

    Did you put a zipper in the pillow?

    Hi Cindy – no zipper. I stuffed the pillow inside the pillowcase from the opening shown in the 3rd picture. Kind of hard to see, but it's right down the middle..

    Thanks! I shy away from zipper projects. Nice job on the pillow.

    How exciting!! You are opening an on-line shop?!! One of my dreams!! Your pillow is so cute!! It looks so sweet with the embroidery. I was able to talk myself out of buying Sherbet Pips…don't know if I will be able to that with Little Apples…I'm a fall person also (Nebraskan).

    That pillow is adorable! Wow, your first embroidery project, I can't tell. It looks great! I am so wanting to try some embroidery, hope to take the time to try it soon. Hope you are feeling 100% real soon! Good luck on the upcoming on-line shop.

    The embroidery and the pillow are super cute.

    Honestly I am not convinced about the olive in this fabric line yet but maybe I should see it "in person" first. 😉
