Last year I came across a post on Instagram from Shannon of Eva Blake’s Makery. She was looking for people willing to make some samples of her new fabric line from Moda- Acreage! I thought that it sounded very fun, so I contacted her and she graciously let me make a throw pillow for market!
Shannon sent me 3 gorgeous prints from the line and gave me free reign to design a pillow. I mulled it over it for a long time trying to decide how to best do justice to this beautiful fabric! I decided on a star pillow, using the awesome bike print to accent the middle star! The middle of the stars was the perfect chance to showcase this pretty floral. I love that this design strikes a balance between vintage and modern- something that Acreage does perfectly!
I chose some simple straight line quilting to make sure the fabrics could shine!
For the back, I used another small star and all three prints to do some stripes. I used a hidden zipper closure to finish this pillow off.
I had so much fun making this pillow! And seeing pictures of it in the Acreage lookbook and at Quilt Market was so crazy! The quilting community is so great and I am glad I could be a small a part of it!
Until next time!
