Vintage Treasure #3…Continued

It’s Cindy reporting in from Ohio.

This past weekend, I started working on Vintage Treasure #3 for our family friend.  This is going to be a pillow that will finish at 18 inches square.  The polyester squares were sewn together with tiny seams…probably 1/8 inch.  Some of the seams were hand sewn with black thread, you can see the little thread remnants in the photo below.

Tiny Seams

Because the seams are so narrow and it’s polyester fabric, I couldn’t really press the seams open for quilting.  I decided to machine quilt using straight seams on both sides of the 1/8 inch seam.

I was hoping to finish the project but Norma gave me “the look” so I stopped sewing to play with my girl!

I hope to finish the pillow this week, providing Norma gives me permission!
