For Christmas, hubby gave me a couple of quilting books. One of them was Quilt du Jour by Marny Buck and Jill Guffy.
Usually when I get a new quilting book, it takes me a while before I do anything but look at the pretty pictures.
But with Quilt du Jour, I wanted to make something right away! The book has a set of blocks and suggestions for many different layouts.
So I made this pillow using the It’s a Wrap block.
I made the pillow for a friend who likes orange and grey. I used three different shades of grey along with an orange print and a cream solid.
The pattern uses a stack and cut technique to make the blocks. I loved how quickly the blocks came together.
For the quilting, I went with straight lines to form tiny rectangles.
I made a lapped zipper closure in the back. I love a lapped zipper – so neat and tidy!
The pillow is now in its new home. I’m thinking about what to make next using the It’s a Wrap block. Not that I have any reason to start a new project with all my w.i.p.s, but I like to plan ahead!
