A Glimma of Spring

If you’ve been following along for the last month or so, you might remember that I made this cute little quilt from a couple charm packs of Glimma. When cutting the Triangles, I ended up with a lot of scraps that were big enough to save, but pretty small to use. But Glimma is so pretty, I couldn’t bear to throw them away!

So, I trimmed the pieces down into squares and made up this mosaic-y pillow. I would say patchwork, but the squares are nowhere near perfectly lined up. And in the end, I kind of liked the result better than practically perfect patchwork.

From the minute I cut the squares from scraps, I knew that this pillow was meant for a certain person. Now that it has arrived at its new home, I’m so glad to get to share it here.

I really love how fresh and springy it is. The colors in this line are really bright and pretty, which is probably why I have spent so much of my last couple of weeks cutting it and shipping it around the world. (If you haven’t already ordered yours, you can find it in our little shop here)

I also took a picture of the back of the pillow before sewing the actually back flap on. The quilting turned out better than I expected, so I had to document it!

Today, I am going to go try and finish a BUNCH of random works in progress that only have one or two little things that need finishing to move them into my finished projects category. What are you going to be up to?
