    Sharing My Excitement - First Sewing/Quilting Project

    Under the mentorship of a close friend, the internet and many of you people, I am doing four pillow covers for my sofa with Amy Butler fabrics. I am sharing a pic of my first two rows sewn all together (on the left), as well as the next pillow I've got pieced out. So excited about this, because it is fun and I adore the fabric. Sorry the color is not very accurate on the first and the second is so dark--I don't have a flash on my camera. - Karen

    Your pillows are looking great! I hope this opens a lifetime of sewing pleasure for you.

    Thanks! A funny thing is, I've already fallen in love with another set of her fabrics, bought some and am planning a queen size quilt. First things first, though, of course! Before I do the queen quilt I will finish the pillows and use the rest of this fabric for a little throw/lap quilt.

    I will have to tell everyone who sits on my sofa to sit gently against them, hahaha.

    They look great, well done. I smiled when I read how excited you are. It stays with you. I still get excited with my projects even after several years of quilting. You will have those cushions done in time for Christmas, ideal timing. Please show us the completed items and good luck with new projects you may be planning.
