Zig Zag Pillow- IEC Project 3

I have finished Project 3 using designs from the Martha Pullen IEC for 2013, this time from the garment fashion set. I am making a series of cushions/pillows for my daughter in black/white and pink tonings and this is the first one. It is approximately 18 inches square. I am trying to make these cushions without piping/ zippers etc so that my daughter can wash and iron them with little trouble. I have meander quilted around the embroidery and in the star print fabric. I have just place some filling in this cushion and will remove it later as I will taking them in suitcase on the plane and space is a premium. I will make a fabric insert and buy some filling when I get over there and stuff them then.
I will be sending out the instructions to the people in my email group when I get them done.

Yesterday was spent by going with my husband to the dentist. He went to the dentist and I went to  Spotlight in Burnie. Walked in the door and they had one Small Semco Crafter's iron for $10. I have been wanting a small iron but not willing to outlay a large amount of money and find out it is not that good.


  1. Vickie, I love your cushion. It is a while since I had visited your blog and I had forgotten how wonderful it is. I am just getting back into sewing again after a 2 year break. I'm finding I've forgotten some things so I'm finding relearning fun

  2. Hi Viv, it is a long time since I have done things like put a zip into a garment etc in as well and it takes while to get back into the swing of things.

  3. The pillow turned out great. That combination would also look good on a pillow case.
