Pattern Testing

I recently had the pleasure to pattern test for Pitchers Boutique. 
 I chose the Spartan Helmet.  
I thought I could make it into a cushion cover for my son. 
 The pattern was awesome and went together very well.  
I love to paperpiece and this pattern was an easy one.  
I finished the whole block and realized only after taking a photo that I had actually missed a piece.  
I ripped out the parts I needed to and fixed it.  
SO much happier with how it came out!

You can see in the photo on the left that the right eye is not right.  
The photo on the right has the corrected helmet.
 Yes it was a pain to rip it out but I like it so much better!

This is the front of the pillow cover after I quilted it.
I used Snow White Grunge for the background.
It has bits of green in it and it was the perfect color.

I used Spartan fabric (of course) for the back.
I put in a covered zipper too using the same fabric I made the helmet with.

Isn't that so cool?  My friend, Pam Gavin taught me how to do that!

Speaking of Spartans, I was finally able to gift the graduation quilt to one of my favorite Spartans

She loved it and is going to decorate her dorm room around it!

It always makes me so happy when my quilts are so loved!
