This pillow is inspired by the traditional Dresden quilt block and uses the EZ Dresden wedge ruler by Simplicity. This ruler is available at large chain sewing outlets, as well as lots of independent quilt shops. I've used this ruler on projects before including a traditional Dresden block as well as my Peppermint Pinwheels quilt tutorial. This wedge is an 18 degree wedge and requires 20 wedges to complete the circle. (There are other wedge rulers at different widths that will use a different number of wedges to create the circle.)
For this project I am using Bari J's newest collection Bijoux. As always, the designs are rich and the colors are so vibrant! And Art Gallery Fabrics is giving away a bundle of this collection. To enter to win you must follow the AGF rules and follow Art Gallery Fabrics on your favorite social media platform (Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter) or Subscribe to their blog. Don't forget Flickr where you can also upload your AGF projects.
Giveaway open until Friday, May 24 at midnight MST.And finally, some out-takes from the pillow photo-shoot last week before I left. My trusty assistant wanted to show-off his Vanna White skills. They may be goofballs, but they're MY goofballs and I'm so happy to be home with them.
