More animals after the hedgehogs! It was such fun to work on the “large” hedgehogs, that I decided to do some smaller ones. I used the idea from Elizabeth Hartman’s website and made pillow covers with a hedgehog between two foxes. The real Mickey cat is enjoying his animal company!
The fox block was sewn quickly as there are not so many pieces. To get a good result when sewing the small hedgehog, I started to check the unit sizes after each step. So when I sew all units together that they match. The small hedgehog as an ideal block to train an exact 1/4″ seam allowance and precise pressing. Anyway it was fun to see how the block comes together. The hedgehog/fox pillow covers are free-motion quilted – stippled.
Since I have passively followed the Dog Gone Cute quilt along by Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts, I thought it was time to make some more hairy friends. I decided to make some pillow covers that will stay on our sofa. As I am a big fan of Kaffe Fasset, the fabric choice was made quickly – both for the hedgehog/fox and dog blocks.
Lorna has made a superb job with the pattern, it is understandable and easy to follow. I have quilted these covers using the walking foot in an irregular wavy pattern.
On this place I would like to share photos from Andrea of the table runner I gave her. Andrea likes bright colors and it can be seen also in here home. Love it!
This is my last sewing project in 2015, I am slowly getting packed for my trip to Prague. I have sorted out my stash, cleaned up my sewing room and I am getting ready for the festive season.
Have a wonderful week, thank for stopping, Barbora
