Cozy Cottage Calendar 2016

Sharing one of Lori Holt's pattern designs is always fun.
 I love her cottage theme and tried to keep a similar theme only with a beachy twist. Those of you who know me, know that I am slowly converting my home to my beach house.


This is my rendition of a beach house pillow...of course I only use the best fabrics made by Riley Blake Designs and Penny Rose Fabrics.
I used Elea Lutz "Milk, Sugar and Flower"...
Tasha Noel "Vintage Market"... 
RBD mini quatrefoil...Hope Chest...
Lori Holt "Modern Minis"


The calendar is filled with beautiful photos of 
Lori's cozy cottage. Click here to purchase.
Don't you love the quilt featured on the front of the calendar!!!
Those are 4" blocks...so adorable:)




I used the 8" house block and then used Lori's border and instructions to finish the pillow at 18". Using my sewing machine I quilted every 1/2" to give the pillow a quilted finish.


Choosing beachy colors was fun...mints, light and dark blues all come together for this cozy cottage beachy pillow.



Looking at this pillow takes me to my happy place.




 It makes me think happy thoughts and cozy cottage feelings.
Thank you Lori for continuing to inspire us all.


I dream of days sitting on my porch sewing my applique projects and listening to the waves hit the sand and watching the sun set...in the meantime I will keep making cute projects for my beach house.

Happy Sewing!

Jina
