Work in Progress-Popsicle Pillow

Popsicle Pillow Applique

I took a break from my bigger projects to work on a summer-themed project this week.

Don’t you love popsicles in the summer?

For this little pillow, I cut out the simple shapes and tacked them down with a little glue.  I layered the fabric on a piece of light-weight batting before zig-zag stitching around the raw edges.  This is a very informal way to appliqué.  I use it for experimental pieces and for quick, casual projects.

Once the pieces were appliquéd, I did a little free motion quilting to complete the pillow top.  (See The Circle free motion quilting tutorial HERE)

I will finish this pillow with piping and a simple quilted back…

Sweet dreams!   (or sweet Dreamsicles!)
