This time round Danny needs pillow covers 20x20". I pitched in to make two. At first I wondered what pattern I could use that would be big enough. Then I remembered seeing this post from Katy for a Giant Granny and well it was the right size! I delved into my Charm box and got to work. I've done one pillow top so far. The other is the same prints only a different backing and center colour and will have a different layout.
Here is the first at the moment.
Though before all that sewing I actually did some applique work first. Mainly because I knew it would take a while and would also take time to dry from all the fusing.
I didn't use bondaweb.....I used hemming web. I bought some wide hemming web and used that along with the thinner strip one to stick the pieces down.
I had to use a dab of glue to hold them in place, but it worked out.
I laid a wet cloth over the whole block and fused it slowly. It worked out eventually after much steaming and re-wetting the cloth.
I also sashed the 'Scrapbook' Blocks and my smaller Granny Block (3" Squares used)
6 blocks down....um when I decide how many I want X amount to go...It'll be around the 15-20 range. I think I'll add another Granny Block to the collection....and a scrappy one too
Suggestions for other blocks will be greatly appreciated (my blocks are 11x11.5")
