I chose navy blue, grass green and a natural linen. The navy and greens were all scraps! I'm trying to use scraps you guys, and it's still hard for me LOL! I traced my paper pieces onto regular lined writing paper, and went to town making these blocks.
Since my sewing machine is in the shop getting a good cleaning, I haven't been able to sew this into a pillow yet. I used a green Perle 8 cotton thread to hand quilt it.
This video also helped me a lot!! I like having some visual references for sure.
And like two days after I pieced this all together, Rita at Red Pepper quilts had made a template and put it up for FREE at her Craftsy site. Go download it! It made me laugh, we are all on the same wavelength apparently. Enjoy!!
