Birdie Charm Pillow: a Challenge project and a pattern

Earlier this year, the Modern Quilt Guild offered a spring fabric challenge sposored by Riley Blake Fabrics. We were provided with 6 fat eighths of a new fabric line and challenged to make something with it.

I made this cute birdie pillow that I love very much.

I pieced the front then added the appliqué shapes using fusible web. I quilted the pillow with an all-over vertical design and used thicker thread and a scribbly free motion stitch around the shapes and to fill in details.

The back is a simple exposed zip closure for a pop of colour.

I'm delighted to announce that I got my poop in a group (as they say) to write up a pattern for this pillow. It's available as a pdf download in my Craftsy pattern shop.

I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
