The “heat dome” has been sitting over us and is is way TOO HOT to go outside. What to do? QUILT!
I recently replaced my bed frame with a new (and more modern) upholstery headboard and surround. I do love it but felt that I needed a couple of accent pillows to complete the look.
I got on Pinterest and found a modern pillow (http://justanotherhangup.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-pillow-design.html) to use as inspiration for my pillows. Gotta love Pinterest!
I love this linen looking fabric and thought that it worked well with my textured headboard.
In my mind, modern quilting is all about the negative space and
the quilting, so I had some fun with straight line quilting on the linen looking fabric. I like sectioning off areas and then I use various width lines in each section. I think that it has more interest than simple even straight lines. Uneven widths are also more forgiving and that works for me!
