Chevron Pillow

Oh yes I am hanging my head in shame! I CANNOT believe I haven't blogged since November! Wow. Time to change that!

A lot has happened since I last blogged. I went back to school and became a nurses assistant working with elderly patients with dementia. Something I had never thought about doing, but I absolutely love it! The patients are so insightful and wickedly funny! Another school year has finished and my children are now in 8th, 6th, and 4th grades!

I have also started teaching at my LQS (Local Quilt Store) again and thought I'd show you a class I'm teaching in July, since I just made the class samples and it's freshly in my mind!

I absolutely adore Kaffe Fasset fabrics and when paired with a rich Kona Solid they're especially delicious!
This class is a pillow making class, with a twist - it's a two-for-one class, in that you make one pillow, and the scraps from that pillow magically become extra blocks which you turn into a second pillow. Very very cool! It is using a chevron block (can we start calling them what they are folks? ZIG ZAGS!) with a technique I've been using for years but is just becoming more common. I even have a tutorial HERE if you'd like to try it out.

Here's to a great summer of fun, and I promise, of more frequent blogging!

Actually... the chevron pillow would be the pillow that doesn't have the green border... I was in the military and a chevron just goes in one direction. Where your other pillow has the zig zag on it cause it goes both directions. Lol...

Oops... I forgot to say, nice to have you back. Good for you on your new job. Serving others is quite uplifting isn't it? I don't do so now but when I was a kid I worked at a Veterans Hospital as a volunteer.
Makes you appreciate each day doesn't it?
