Schoenrock Success



  

Linking up to Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, 
Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday and TGIFF!

Here she is!! Boy, that feels great!! I am so excited to have this one completed. It has been "in the works" since about last March when I downloaded the instructions for the Schoenrock Cross block from quilterscache.com


Here is the simple envelope style back of the pillow, which is a fun combo of prints!! The aqua is a thin bias stripe, part of the Odds &Ends fabric line.

I wanted to go a little bit of the extra mile with this one so I took the extra time to put on a binding in the same solid brown that I used on the companion pillow I made last year. 


I did some very simple quilting on it, using three colors of thread to blend with the different sections of the piecing. I used cream on the lightest bits, lime green on the aqua and green bits, and a bright cherry red in the center cross portion. 



I love how it looks with this Poinsettia Pillow I started at Pink Castle Fabrics Quilt Camp more than a year ago!! This is also my first finish for the 2014 Q1 Finish Along.

Here is my original list... click HERE.

    1. It only took me a year to finish the second pillow!! I am sure you can make new ones faster than me! Thanks for stopping by
