Evening Stitch and my first Spring finish

My evening stitching project last week was the continuation of Sarah's Revival - Block 4. It's officially completed and added to my virtual quilt grid
(located on the right side bar of my blog).

I also made a cheerful 18" square Star pillow this first week of Spring.
The pattern is a Swirly Girls design and instead of using fabric selvages, I decided to strip piece the stars using a very pretty Cherry & Blossom fabric line called EMMA by Timeless Treasures.

Check out the darling Pom pom fringe!
I can't help but smile when I run my fingers across these whimsical puffs of vintage inspired dangling sweetness.

This was my first attempt at using Pom pom fringe.... but it's definately not my last. I see a few summer lap quilts and sofa accesories made in the very near future trimmed with Pom pom borders. (grin)

Wishing you all a fabulous start to Spring!

every quilt tells a story....

  1. Like pom pom too. And your virtual quilt grid. Do you make these grids yourself?

  2. Your pillow is very springy and what's not to love about Pom Poms daintily dangling. One of my next projects is also a pillow with dingle balls!

  3. Nice work on both counts. :) One day I will get all my Affairs of the Heart blocks stitched so I can start on my own Sarah's Revival! Love the tiny poms around the spring pillow - fun!

  9. Love your pillow. I've never used pom pom trim and it's so cute. Was it hard to sew?

  10. Beautiful pillow and the pom poms are really cute. I'll one day try them out. Your Sarah's block 4 is outstanding, I love it, do you cut the red fabric underneath or do you just leave it?

  13. Love your sweet pillow - can we sit on the porch and sip lemonade? That is what it brings to mind. Beautiful applique too!

  14. I love your version of the pillow, Doreen! My husband's mother had her own Polish name for pom-poms - she called them Boom-ba-letzga!
    Cheers!

  16. It's always good to see what you are working on and getting accomplished. I did get all the blocks for my challenge quilt done and they are pinned into rows, but I still can't share it until June. I hate that! I feel like such a slug as nothing else has been getting done. Soon though, soon. Thank you for brightening my day with your pretty spring pillow. I sure wish spring would come to MI.
