I’m sharing a new project over as a guest contributor at the Olfa site. You know me – I love short-cuts – and this is for a fun, graphic Zipper-Teeth block that I made into a deceptively quick throw pillow.
For this project I used to contrasting colors to show off the simple graphic elements – but rather than solid black, I used Riley Blake’s Circle Dot in Charcoal paired with Riley Blake’s solid Clean White. I like how the subtle circle print gives the fabric a little more texture, while still providing great contrast.
You can find the full Zipper-Teeth tutorial here.
I was honored to be asked by Olfa because their products are some of my hands-down favorite. (And no, they didn’t pay me to say that.) Olfa rotary cutters are by far my favorite. If you don’t have an Olfa rotary cutter, do yourself a favor and just get one. I promise you will thank me later. (My personal favorite are the Splash cutters because they’re colorful, easy to change the blade, and relatively inexpensive for a tool you’re going to use for years.) I also LOVE their 5″ scissors – they’re so handy – and I also just discovered their frosted rulers this year. They don’t slip!
In addition to the project, the Olfa folks interviewed me as well. If you’ve ever wanted to know the dominant color in my stash, when I got started quilting, or other such exciting tidbits you’re dying to find out, you can read the interview here.
