I've added a new pillow to my shop. If you recognize the colors, you're right, the last of the Medallion Quilt scraps found their way into this guy.
In hindsight I can't figure out why I haven't been making more quilted pillows. Maybe because they require a nice backing fabric and zippers that aren't usually in my stash. I stocked up on some heavier weight fabric and a TON of zippers the last time I went to PA. I have a love hate relationship with storing fabric, notions and scraps. Usually I don't want to get rid of a single scrap I might use, and like any crafter every time I go into a fabric or craft store there are plenty of things I'd like to buy. The reality is, I live in a tiny NYC apartment, and I don't have space for an extensive fabric stash. I have one tiny drawer system, and two fabric storage boxes from Muji filled with my fabric stash. Most of it is already sorted into piles of future quilts, so its not really like having my own little fabric store to "shop" from when I'm sewing.
I was NOT using my scraps for a long time – they were overflowing from every corner of my desk – so I finally decided enough is enough. If you've been following along you've seen the scraps compositions I've been making. This time I still had a bunch of scraps leftover that I'm pretty tired of using, but instead of tossing them in boredom I whipped together a fun little pillow. I've already pulled some stacks of scraps together to make more!
