Guest Spot

Psst—I'm guest blogging over at Fat Quarterly today. So exciting, right? Head over there for my tutorial for this wonky sunshine pillow. Would you believe you can make it without paper-piecing? It's true. You'll just have to hop over to FQ to find out how.

And if you're not up for making one of these yourself, you can still have this pillow for your very own. My version is for now for sale through Quilt Hope In's etsy store. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to help women and children in Haiti. So you can brighten your day with a quilted sun, and brighten their day with some much needed medical help and education. Can't beat that.

Edited to add: I'm entering this in the Blogger's Pillow Party for March. Fun!

    1. Hi Megan - I found the post and I've updated the links accordingly. Unfortunately it looks like all the photos are missing from the post. I've emailed someone at Fat Quarterly to see if they can fix it. I'll keep you posted!


I love comments and read every one of them! : )
