2015 was a fun year of learning new skills, meeting designers, lots of free patterns and tutorial videos by the Fat Quarter Shop. Over the next fortnight, the Fat Quarter Shop will re-visit the Top 10 videos of 2015 and have invited a few bloggers along for the ride.
The Charm Box Quilt was on of the most popular videos of 2015 by the Fat Quarter Shop. It's a fun pattern and perfect for using up favourite charm packs or mini charm packs. Here's my version of the Charm Box pattern.
Yes, it's a pillow. With embroidery. You know me - I like to mix things up a little.
I wanted to use my 2.5" squares of Retro 30's Child Smile by Lecien Fabrics (super cute!) so created the pillow using the mini quilt pattern (minus the outer border).
As I was putting the pillow together, I decided that some embroidery would look great in the white sashing portion. The words are embroidered with basic back stitch and french knots.
