Finally finished off the Pillow 2.0 for son and his lovely wife. Our grandpuppy, Molly, had lovingly and thoroughly chewed through the corner of one.
I took the pillows apart and removed the old stuffing. Soaking the front panels in Oxyclean for about a week helped remove the gray stains and evidence of puppy love.

Cutting the old vintage sheet border down to remove the chewed piece and choosing a new vintage sheet to add another border actually made the pillows larger. This new border is from a sheet found on one of last year’s antique shopping trips.

The original pillows had a spiral quilting design, but I chose to do a stipple for the newly added border.

New stuffing and backing make a completed redo of pillows to match the Double Wedding Ring quilt I made them for their wedding.

Here’s hoping Molly and her new brother-pup Buddy stick to chewing their toys instead!

As a one year anniversary gift for my son and daughter-in-law, I made two pillows to match their wedding quilt. These almost “disappeared” or went missing....I wanted to keep them because of the gorgeous colors and fabrics.
My grandpuppy, Molly, chewed the corner from one of them and almost four years later, I’m repairing, renewing and repurposing them with a beautiful vintage sheet find, new quilting, stuffing and backing. #vintagelove #vintagelinens #vintagesheet #repurposing #usewhatyougot #vintagesheets #pillows #april2018 #spring #spring2018 #quilting #quiltersofinstagram #quilt #sewing #sewin #fmq #blues

I have been working on a largish project and wanted to try some thread sketching on a smaller project. Might become a pillow. Instant gratification always makes me happy!

This child. Has come so far! His story is encouraging and inspiring. He struggled in school until we started educating at home. Graduating from BSU this summer. Getting an internship at his university. He has saved lives. He helps change lives of kids with Autism. He loves his family. Marriage next year to his best friend.
Has the talent of his great-Grandpa to find four-leaf clovers on campus just as he’s walking to class.

After a month of waiting, my machine is back and "as close to new" as it could get!

Working on a commissioned Bridal Shower gift and in between quilting bouts on that, I'm finishing up this pillow top for son Chris's fiancé.
All machine-pieced hexagons in the colors of her apartment bedroom. The top is a shot of the backside pre-ironing and the bottom is my quilting lines in a loopy FMQ pattern on the freshly pressed front.
We are back to -20 or so wind chills, so I'm very happy to be working on warm, summer colors!

If you squint, you can see the outline of a snowflake I'm working on using my domestic machine.
