A Stitch in Time {English Paper Piecing Book}

I actually made a place mat!


Just kidding...
I started making a place mat and changed my mind and made a throw pillow.


The pattern is called the Tea Time Placemat from Sharon's from Lillabelle Lane Creations's new book, A Stitch in Time.



She asked a few of us bloggers if we would join her for a tour of her book and I had to do another project with one of her patterns from her amazing English Paper Piecing book!!




It really is a lovely publication.  There are a ton of small projects that you can finish rather quickly. They would make great gifts as the holidays approach.  This throw pillow that I adapted from the place mat pattern is quick to make and allows a lot creative ways you can add your own touch.



I had originally planned to take the vintage feel that the reproduction prints gave a little further with some embroidery as she suggested in her book, but I couldn't resist giving it a modern twist with matchstick quilting adding pops of color to tone the dark brown crosshatch fabric I used for the background.


The only difference than her placemat finish is that I added a hidden zipper backing.



And instead of the headache of piping?  I just bind my pillows as if they were quilts!
