The simple how-to of my
I used a charm pack and cut the 5" squares into 2-1/2" squares, arranged them and stitched them all together.
This was my simple original plan for this pillow, but it turned out so blah looking that I had to come up with a plan B. I cut some brighter strips of red, white and blue. These strips are 3/4".
Next cut each row of blocks in half (1" from the sewn seam) and sew a 3/4" strip between the blocks. I did this one row at a time.
I liked how it was progressing.
I continued and did the same pattern in the other direction.
Now it had the visual impact I was hoping for!
So simple, isn't it! I'm so anxious to do this modern plaid in some brightly colored fabrics.
