The LAST Pillow
Here’s my trial block for the 5th Color Collective block by Tara Faughnan.
I LOVE this block, which one draws on freezer paper and then uses that method to sew the block. It is different than foundation piecing, and I really like the method. BUT, I am still grappling with getting the points to stop at the right place. I am on my third drawn template now, but am understanding how to get the result I want.
I also discovered that I like the bright colors against a dark background, unlike the Lone Star version with the light grey background.
I used green in this last pillow so it would blend with the other pillows I’ve made.
Here is Tara’s quilt made from this block, though she also sent us other versions one might consider:
WOW! Look at these wonderful blocks! Each one represents a new method to learn.
The Color Collective (Amy Nebold/Sewtopia) will continue in the fall. I will definitely sign up again.
And now there are 10 pillows, scattered around the house. You have seen pics and posts about these pillows already. All have been made with Anna Graham’s method with an invisible zipper closing and with lined and quilted fronts and backs—from Anna’s book HANDMADE STYLE. Her shop is “Noodlehead.”
There is one more block in Season 1 of THE COLOR COLLECTIVE though…
I’m playing with it now…
