Bravo Blocks & Botanika Pillows

I had some lovely sewing time to myself this weekend and was able to get some projects started.

Botanika & Aviary 2

I had a lot of fun working on these pillow covers using Paula Prass’ Wing Study in Pastille and Joel Dewberry’s Woodgrain in dill, the dill really picks up the green in the bird, a nice combination, IMO.

Another awesome combination is Paula Prass’ Wing Study in Pastille & Joel Dewberry’s Herringbone in Pond, it’s an exact match for the blue in the bird’s crown. The brown I’m using in these pillows was actually linen curtains from our bedroom. There wasn’t anything wrong with them, we just wanted a change in decor.

I was also able to make a few block using my beloved Patricia Bravo collection. I really fell in love with this Brick Wall quilt by Shape Moth, who entered it in the Celebrate Color party. The blocks are very simple but I love the results. I’ll be using the ever popular Kona Ash for my sashing and will attempt to QAYG. They kinda look like placemats laid out in this photo, hmmm…

Bravo Blocks

There’s no rush for me to finish this quilt as it’s just to snuggle in and watch tv.

Wile I was sewing today, I watched the pilot episode of the X Files on NetFlix. I was a huge fan of the show in it’s hey-day but had never seen the first episode. Agent Scullie’s first outfit was hideous, an oversized suit, big and baggy, ug! Funny. ย ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Oh wow, I love that aviary fabric and what you did with them, Tabatha. Very cool bravo blocks too. Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.

    • Thanks M-R! Paula Prass’ Botanika Wing Study is hard to get, when in stock, you have to jump on it immediately because it disappears in the blink of an eye. I’m purchasing 2 yards next time it’s in stock!
