My World Series sewfest has turned into a finished project. Yippee! With my brand new machine quilting stippling skills gaining traction every minute, I feel free to semi-confidently finish some old projects that have been languishing in the “someday” pile for quite some time.
Fall pillow covers for my sofa bench pillows have been a long time on my to-do list . I started out with this just days ago:
Then I moved to this:
And now I’m here!My barren living room has finally acquired some fall color and warmth. I’ve get to wash the cover soon to see if in fact the term “quilting it out” (as in quilting out the mistakes) is a useful term.
Stand back — there is more to come — I’ll be shrinking that “someday” pile a little more each day.

I enjoy your blog. The pillow is great. Using all the bits and pieces from other projects feels good, doesn’t it?
Love the pillow!
love the colors!! your stitching looks great!
I love the bench pillow – I bet all those colors add some sparkle to the room! I covered a bench with a similar type of pattern – I love little squares of different fabrics together!
The pillow is really lovely. One of theses days I also want to get up the courage to try stipling to quilt, at the moment it´s all straight or wavy lines 🙂
Thanks Alice! If I can do it, so can you!
Love the bench pillow. I get a lot done on Sundays because some else is watching 8 football games at once.
Good news on the pillow front! I have scraps and need to make room for more!
