BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN!

After what seemed like a lifetime away from my Quilted Story website I am finally "Back in the Saddle" again!  Yes, there has been kicking and screaming... and little bit of a tantrum throwing going on...all at the same time...but Good Grief, it is great to be back and I have so many new things to share with you all... So without further ado...let's jump right in! 

Since we have just finished the Holidays and brought in the New Year, I thought a picture of my new sweet "MERRY" Pillow would be a great start!  This is one of those simple, but fun Machine Applique projects that you can make in an afternoon! 

First, I purchased an 18" square pillow cover in this fabulous red and white geometric print from my local Hobby Lobby Store and used a 20" square pillow form...simply because I like to use the rule of thumb of having my pillow form about 2 inches larger than the size of the pillow cover.  This way the form "fills" the cover completely and gives it the "perfect platform" for my panel wrap!  

Second, I Machine Appliqued the word "MERRY" onto a pretty piece of linen...just because I love the way it looks! I then took that piece of linen and made it into a simple panel wrap and used a velcro closure on the back side.  This way I can simply remove the panel wrap whenever I want to replace it with a different "look".  So in essence...I have ONE pillow cover and form...but by changing out the panel wraps, I can get a handful of diffferent "looks"...

How fabulous is that?

Thank You for all your patience regarding my website growing pains and please join us here as we move towards "Great things ahead"!
