And now for something different.








Just in case you thought that all I do is baby quilts and dorm sets for college bound girls- here are a few pillows and throws that I have made up recently. I'm always looking for something new to work on. Wouldn't these look great in a bachelor pad? The found objects, like the horse skull, the lobster buoys, riding boots, etc. , give the room a more individual flair- uncommon products for the unique room. My favorite pillow is the zebra pillow. I used Steam a Seam fusible bonding to iron and then raw edge appliqué the zebra onto the vintage Vera tree fabric. I love raw edge applique- instant gratification at it's most gratifying! A cat is always a nice touch.

I see your kitty cat eyeing the fur throw...made me laugh. We have one too and it is a cat magnet! I love your pillows! Would you do a tutorial on raw edge applique?
