Another School Auction Pocket Pillow

 Friday, April 26, 2013

One of my really good friends asked me to do a pocket pillow for her school auction that she works at every year, so of course I said yes.  Since I only had time to make one, I decided to make this one very gender neutral, so it would be perfect for either a boy or a girl.

I made the pillow out of  the "Welcome to Bear Country" fabric collection by Moda.  I really like this fabric collection.  The Berenstain Bears were my favorite when I was growing up!  The pattern I used was from the book Growing up Modern by Allison Harrison.  The only thing I changed was I made my pocket out of hourglass blocks and added a binding strip across the top of the pocket.  It is a really easy pattern and goes together rather quickly.  I needed that because I must confess that I started it and finished it last night!  The thread I used was #971 Superior King Tut Quilting Thread.  It seems to work the best with my machine for the most part.  The quilting pattern is just a basic allover swirl.  Here are some up close pictures of the quilting.  

Now hopefully it does well at the school auction!

Happy Quilting!

That's a neat idea...and your swirls look great!
