Modern Sorbet - Giveaway and A New Pattern based on the Drunkard's Path

I have a sewing room, I use it for sewing, sure, ironing too. When it comes to cutting and trimming I'm obviously spread out in the lounge room, there is TV there! And my sewing room is just a tad squishy. Therefore, I spend a lot of time on the floor which is hard on the knees especially on the hardwood.

I had stumbled upon so many gorgeous quilted pillows, a few I even made into throw pillows. Then I saw the gigantor floor pillows and I immediately added one of those on my mental to make list (don't even ask me how long that list is, I don't even know)

Of course many quilts and assorted projects came and went until I began trying my hand at 'Quilt Design a Day' and became obsessed with the versatility of the drunkards path blocks. An obsession began, and I can't even begin to tell you how many QDAD's I've designed using that block.

So finally, I made one of my many designs, behold! My Amazeballs floor pillow (Insert trumpets sounding here)

Isn't she perty! 

I totally love it, and while it doesn't exactly match my fire engine red couch, I don't even care! (It'll match my dream couch I swear) Plus my knees and every single pokie-outie bone in my ankles and feet are really happy now.

I'd mentioned previously that I had made some pillows using zips in bright colours, but the way that I was sewing my zips in meant that that zips were protected (Ehm, hidden) by fabric flaps. I've changed that now and my brightly colored zippers are out in the open for all to see!

In typical quilty fashion the pillow is made with a fully quilted 'quilt sandwich' and bound (because that's my favourite part of the whole process) 

It's quilted using multi directional straight lines in white, that way I'm not distracting from the curves.

So the pattern for this beauty is available in the Etsy Shop as well as Craftsy along with the rest of my quilting, crochet and craft patterns.
