Aylin made this pillow last week, for Tacha. To say I am jealous is an understatement, I am sick to my back teeth with envy. But it did make me think, I should make myself one like hers using texty prints for backgrounds.
I'm currently on my third pillow using Silent Cinema in the same pattern but mixing up the backgrounds, so instead of wheels, you get flowers. I've shown you a gazillion times, but like this...
And this little quilty is at Long Armed Chris' being custom quilted all fancy dan ready for it's trip to Sewing Summit later this year (where I'll be teaching a class on - you guessed it - this pattern, amongst other stuff English Paper Piecy).
So Aylin thought a sew-along might be a fun idea, not a strict one where there would specific posts or anything but a group where you should share pictures of your ferris wheel blocks, or spring carnival or whatever you'd like to call it. Sometimes I like to call it the damn never ending pillow project. Because that's what it is. But then I forget it's never ending and I love it again.
