Day 3 of The Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop

Day 3 of the Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop !

            Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop
                             March 4

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 third day of the blog hop, we will see the pillow that Geta,  quilting goddess and designer,  of Geta's Quilting Studio, has made !

Meet Geta @ Geta's Quilting Studio  blog

Hi! My name is Geta and I love colors and sewing quilts and bags.

I was glad when Susie invited me to sew a pillow using her first pattern.
Susie is an extraordinary pattern tester. I know it because she tested many of my patterns. Her feedback is always very helpful. So I wasn't surprised when I read the pattern: lots of clear pictures and detailed instructions. 

And here are my pillows. Yes, I just had to make two.

This pattern is perfect for that treasured strip of fabric you have in your stash and don't have the heart to use it!!

I modified a little of the width of the center strip, only to be able to use the whole motif of this beautiful Jenean Morrison fabric.

For the two side panels I used solid fabric. Then I was happy quilting a grid with very closed lines.

I usually quilt with neutral colors but on this piece I chose to quilt in green.

The entire family loved the simple but textured look.

 And the "sister" pillow!

Quilted with yellow thread.

Great project for beginners or a fun break for advanced quilters! And definitely, a quick and easy gift to sew.


  These are so elegant, aren't they?   Geta made both of  her stunning  pillows in the 16 inch square pillow size... perfect for showing off her exquisite green and yellow quilting designs!    (The 16 inch pillow dimensions are a bonus in the pattern.)
