At the last PMQG meeting, I was a lucky door prize winner. One of the awesome goodies was a 3-month subscription to Creativebug which is an online education site for all sorts of crafty-ness. It's super cool!
One of the classes offered is taught by my friend Susan Beal. It's all about log cabin quilting. This first class centered on making a pillow... and here's what I made:

I think it took me about 2 hours from start to finish... including picking fabrics. I used some Violet Craft's new line Brambleberry Ridge. The metallics make this a really fun pillow.
I followed Susan's direction up to the quilting where I wanted to just play around with echo quilting - I think it gives it more of an organic feel which I like.
It was nice to take a break from hexies. I got a little frustrated with my layout the other day... so I just picked up all the blues and will start over. Since this is the most important part, I want to make sure I get it just right. I will also be making more blue hexies and pull aside some of the ones I don't like. I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets frustrated and starts over... right? ;)
