Sphere Patchwork Pillow

When I ordered my Liberty fabric from Westwood Acres, they sent along a mini charm pack of Sphere by Moda.  What a nice surprise!  I set about piecing a pillow, along with some Kaufman Essex linen blend, which was just the kind of project I needed to break in my featherweight.
The front was a layer of patchwork, batting and muslin.  The back was envelope style.  I attached the front to the back with binding, just like a quilt.

Now back to the Liberty.....


  1. Nice! It looks so summery and fresh - just what I need as I look at all the Christmas decorations waiting to be put a way and the thermometer reading well below zero!
    Can't wait to see the Liberty project: I ordered a few precious pieces a few months ago and can't decide what project is "Liberty Worthy".
    Happy New Year!

  2. You put the mini charm pack to good use, the pillow is very nice!

  3. It's just lovely, and your pup seems to like it too :-)

  4. Lynne, such a great pillow and I am so happy you are loving the Featherweight. I have to say that the puppy photo-bombing made me smile!

  5. That's the perfect project for a charm pack, and I love the binding edge--great idea! Looks like your featherweight works great--excellent quilting, per usual in these parts. :)

  6. Hello Lynne. I went to become a follower and discovered I already am. Heavens, I must be losing my mind, so that should give you comfort just knowing that a follower is losing her mind and posting a comment today, lol. The patchwork is so much fun. I am so wanting to dust off my sewing machines and get busy, but alas, people keep wanting me to crochet more for them and I can't get past the yarn. Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. Hope the new year brings ua lots of fun stuff to share with others.
