Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Finish It Up Friday (Saturday Edition, again…)



Yes, I finished these Friday, but it never quit snowing all day!   It’s been flurying a lot today, too, but I’m the crazy lady who’s been out there with the camera.


These pretty pillow covers are now lending a touch of spring to my livingroom.  The colors match one of my chairs and the Spring Strings quilt.  As always, I used tons of stings and can’t tell any difference in my containers.  If I never bought fabric again, I could make quilts for quite a while…


I used the hidden zipper technique from Sew Mama Sew.  I’m getting pretty good at it.


After I had changed out the pillow covers, I washed the Christmas ones.  Now, I had pre-washed those fabrics, and washed them when they were first finished, AND I used Color Catchers again yesterday, and I still had some bleeding from the green fabric.  I don’t think it ruins them.  I guess it will wash out over the years.  Hmmm.

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday on Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. Your new pillowcases are lovely. I like the design definition given by the darker strip in each block. Sorely that extra color in your Christmas pillowcases will eventually wash out.

  2. Love your pillows
