Violet Craft loves to add a little bit of patchwork to her home every chance she gets. This Spring she has been admiring some contemporary watercolor quilts, also referred to as color washing. Her style frequently combines a little something classic with a little something modern and for this project she had the idea to use only one print and one solid to create a flowering heart pillow. Look for areas of loose or solid background when selecting a print to work with. Then select a solid closely matched to the background color. For this example she chose Wild Carrot from her Madrona Road collection matched with white background . She had the perfect print in mind and her assistant agreed.
Other Fabric and Notions Required:
Sewing with Junior Seamsters This is a perfect project for kids. My daughter really liked the pillow I created and designed her own using Flight in black from my Waterfront Park collection matched with black background fabric. The overall loose print makes building your heart a simpler process. She uses a ¼” seam foot with guide to get perfect, straight seams. The speed regulation on her machine helps her control her project for a successful finish! She loves her pillow. After this photo was taken the pillow vanished to the depths of her tween room.
