Day 6 of The Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop

Day 6 of the Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop !

            Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop
                             March 7

Welcome to my first Blog Hop on Susie's Sunroom!

I invited six "super star" quilters to make a pillow  "any way you like" from  one pattern-   
     the Simply Striped Accent Pillow Pattern   { available on my Craftsy here}!

Today, the sixth  day of the blog hop, we will see the pillow that Amanda, modern country  quilter, and Mug Rug Pattern Queen, of The Patchsmith blog,  has created!

Meet Amanda @  The Patchsmith blog

From Amanda~

Hi,   I’m Amanda,   also known as the Patchsmith and I am thrilled to be showcasing Susie’s wonderful Simply Striped Accent Pillow pattern today.   

My passion is designing mini quilt and mug rug patterns but I also love to make a pillow or two (we call them cushions here in England).  

I love the simplicity of Susie's Simply Striped Pillow pattern with its envelope closing and easy-to-follow instructions.  It was so quick and easy to make that I even had time to add a little touch of Patchsmith whimsy.

  1. Very nice, I like Scottie Dog a lot as well.

  2. Really cute, but what's about quilters who purchased your pattern yesterday (like me) ;-)
    Have a nice weekend, Martina

    1. Hi Martina, You are absolutely right - we can't have you left out just because you were a day early - that wouldn't be right. Hopefully you have received the Scottie Dog mug rug pattern. I hope you have fun with it. Have a lovely weekend too.
      Amanda a.k.a. the Patchsmith

  3. Really cute, but what's about quilters who purchased your pattern yesterday (like me) ;-)
    Have a nice weekend, Martina

  4. So adorable! The accent strip on the pillow is just the right size, to create piecing, appliques, or feature a favorite print - couldn't be more versatile!

    1. I agree Amy - it is a brilliant little pattern.

  5. I'm in love with Amanda's adorable Scotties and they look smashing on a red gingham pillow!
    Susie, this hop is really showing how perfect your Simply Striped Pillow is for any style. Like Amy just said, it could not be more versatile. That is really great of Amanda to pair her pattern with your pillow as a bonus this weekend!

  6. Your Pillow is soooo cute!!! I jhave a Friend that would looove it too! Awesome!

    1. Thank you Lori. The way Susie has created the envelope closing is very clever - it worked a treat.

  7. How adorable is this Scottie Dog pillow ?! It is so sweet , and with your red gingham, it is just irresistible!!
    I can see LOTS of your applique' patterns being added to the pillow !!

    1. And thank you so very much for your bonus pattern giveaways for this weekend! It's a great pairing, I think!

    2. Thank you for the lovely pattern Susie - I had such fun with it and I know I will again - I am thinking reindeer for Christmas - now wouldn't that look good?
