confetti cottons basket stripe pillows

by Dorie on July 8, 2016

I’m really happy to be a part of Riley Blake’s Quilt-It Modern blog tour! Riley Blake has added some new colors to their Confetti Cottons, and they took the opportunity to partner with some excellent quilters to show them all off.

I wanted to make some pillows based on my Fresh Pack quilt (which is based on basketweave style knitted rib). I decided to take the number of colors I used down to almost just two, but then to keep color in the flying geese rows.

I didn’t want to go with stark black and white, but I wanted to be close and to have a lot of contrast, so I used Riley Blake’s off-white “Cloud” with “Licorice” in one pillow and “Riley Navy” in the other.

I had a whole slew of blues and green to choose from – such great colors. I might still make a pillow (or a mini!) that just uses the blues and green. Time, you know? Two pillows will have to do for now, and my couch will thank me.

I’m at the very end of the tour, but you might want to take a look at the other projects on the tour:

И Ð´¾‚ÂµÃÂ¹Ã‘Ñ‚виÑÂÃельнÐÂÂ,основная масса людей хотела бы,чтобы кто-нибудь дал им команду и они пошли ни о чем не задумываясь,ни за что не неся ответственности.А в случае не успеха всегда будет возможность найти «ÃÂ²ÃÂ¸ÃÂ½ÃÂ¾ÃÂ²ÃÂ½ÃÂ¾ÃÂ³ÃÂ¾». Поэтому так сильны,до сих пор,ностальгические воспоминания о плановом,застойном прошлом,когда ЦК КПСС все решало за тебя.

I got chills reading this. Satan is very real and usually disguises himself so you cannot recognize him so easily. However, it seems that God is giving you insight to be aware, be on guard, put on the Full Armor of God each and every morning.Ephesians 6:9-20Praying for all…
