Starlit Road Pillow- The Pattern and Fabric Choices
August 31, 2022
Some time ago, I stumbled across quilt patterns available for purchase on Etsy. At the time, I couldn’t find a good quilt pattern that made sense to me. Since the patterns I used were widely available in quilting magazines, I decided to buy a few of the sewing patterns and try them.
One of the shops I tried is Maple Cottage Designs. They have become of my favorite Etsy pattern shops because of their easy to follow patterns and easy to understand wording. I loved their patterns so much, I decided to buy a few more patterns from them and make the quilts once I had enough time.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to work on more than one full sized quilts at this time. Even though I can’t make a full sized quilt, I do have the time to make a throw pillow. One of the quilt designs I purchased, Starlit Road, comes with quilt and throw pillow patterns. I had some fabric left over from my current quilt, so I thought making a throw pillow using the Starlit Road Pillow pattern would be a great way to use the rest of the fabric.
The fabric I have left over from my quilt is this fuchsia fabric…
This fabric is from Walmart and is part of the Waverly Inspirations fabric collection. I purchased a two yard pre cut pack of the fabric for the green and pink log cabin quilt. I like the fabric’s color, so I wanted to try to find other ways to using the fabric for quilts and bedding. This is why I purchased more fabric than what I needed.
In addition to the fuchsia fabric, I will be using some of my navy blue scraps from a different sewing project I didn’t talk about online…
As well as some white fabric I purchased and held onto for whatever I may want to use it for…
Both the navy and white fabrics are also from Walmart and are part of the Waverly Inspirations fabric collection.
