Hi friends! Today is the Broken Glass Blog Hop!
What is Broken Glass? It’s a beautiful batik line from Island Batik, designed for Kathy Engle for Swan Amity Sheridan of Swan Amity Studios and it’s landing in stores this month!
To help launch this happy line of fabric, I have joined a group of innovative designers to bring you an exciting list of ideas for smaller projects that make use of this beautiful batik.
I didn’t get a chance to play with the fabric (bummer!) but I thought it would be so amazing as pillows. I have 2 pillow patterns that use my mini Braid template and that is such a fun way to use small pieces of a line!
First pillow is my HeadRest pillow.
Doesn’t if look good?
If you are local and want to make this pillow with me, I am teaching it on March 4th at The Quilt Store in Broomfield!
My second pillow is called Snuggle Up and it is also just so fun to make.
Sometimes it is hard to see what the pillow really looks like when all you see is a flat image. Pillow aren’t flat!
Here is what my original Snuggle Up! pillow looks like. The quilting really adds to the design.
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway! I will be contacting the winner soon.
