my first project for Riley Blake's Design Team and a giveaway!

I am so excited about being a member of this amazing team of designers, and for my first project, I made a Modern Log Cabin pillow cover with an envelope closure using some of Carina Gardner's beautiful Dainty Blossom fabrics. The front is a modern spin on the traditional log cabin quilting block, and with it's clean lines and simple construction, this pillow cover is easy enough for a beginner and a quick project for an experienced sewist. The envelope closure makes it easy to change out the pillow cover whenever you want, plus it's machine washable, which is a must if you have small children and pets like I do! Make a few of these out of your favorite fabrics for a fast and simple way to bring color to any space in your home! 

The tutorial with step-by-step instructions is posted on Riley Blake's blog, so please go check it out. I've also made a downloadable PDF of the pattern, which is available here as a google doc.

And speaking of pets and small children, they always make photo shoots...shall we say... interesting. Or challenging? But certainly more fun, nonetheless. 

Aren't my little helpers cute???
