I’m still quilting along with the Simply Retro Sew-A-Long sponsored by Jana Machado (visit the dedicated Flickr group to see projects from the book Simply Retro). I decided to make a smaller version of the Vintage pattern on page 36 using leftover scraps from Bonnie & Camille’s collection of Vintage Modern fabrics – you might recognize this fabric from the huge bed quilt with matching pillows I made back in June.
I so love this fabric – it is bright and happy and lends itself to so many great projects. This pillow is a generous 20″ x 20″ in size.
I quilted the top using a cross hatch design that I thought complimented the pattern well.
I am having such a great time sewing from this book – if you love a retro look and have enjoyed Camille Roskelley’s designs in the past, I think you would love the patterns found between the pages of Simply Retro.
