Liberty Pillow

Liberty Pillow

Liberty Pillow

My hexagon pillow started last year here is at last finished!
It measures 50 cm x 50 cm (19.5" x 19.5").
There are 52 hexagons assembled by hand. English paper piecing method. Tutorial here.
I only used scraps from Liberty fabrics.
I will post soon a tutorial for sewing a pillow case.

The day I found this picture on Pinterest I instantly decided I have to make this cute little bunny!
Same day I did a pattern (approximate) and started to search among my Liberty scraps.
Next day it was done and sent to my niece for her baby boy to be born next November.

The patchwork body measures 22 cm x 22 cm (about 8.50" x 8.50").

I enjoyed so much sewing this cute cuddly toy that I will make a second one right now : we are expecting several babies soon... Opportunity for creating adorable things!

These days I am still adding borders to enlarge my Gypsy Four Patch quilt top to fit my  bed.
Unfortunately I had no fabric enough to cut stripes properly : following the prints of the fabrics. 
Well... let's say it is boheme style! 

You can see this quilt top before borders were added here.
