As promised a new pattern ... I hope you like it ...
The pattern is called Pretty 'n Pink ... and contains the complete instructions for a collection of 4 pillows;
My Sweet Heart ...
... this pillow suits a European pillow insert. It is based on the swap quilt I made last year for ErinK. Although I have made this design into a pillow it doesn't mean that you are locked into this. You could simply bind the top and use it as a small wall hanging or you could even use it as a center of a medallion quilt. I've used raw edge applique & trapunto to achieve this jigsaw puzzle design.
Sweet Little Garden ...
... this is a simple little pillow that would be a good starting point for a beginner to try out the raw edge technique that I use before launching into the more complex Sweet Heart pattern.
Sugar Candy ...
...is a sweet little cushion completely filled with my jigsaw puzzle styled applique. This would also be a good place to start if you haven't used raw edge applique before. It is also a very simple design that would be a great gift as it looks quite impressive but really is as simple as can be to make.
Finally Just for me ...
... is a small monogram pillow design. I just love this particular cushion as it looks great on any little girls bed and can be whipped up in no time at all. This pillow would also be a perfect gift for a special little friend.
