OLFA Slice & Stitch Challenge

Happy October 1st. can you believe we are in October already. I am just getting use to dealing with pumpkin spice everything. But this week I have the honor of using the Olfa Rotary Cutter and Karen Nyberg Earth Views Threads. Creating fun simple gifts for holiday. So I created a simple throw pillow.

Here are a few supplies you will need:

Olfa Rotary Cutter

Arufil thread

Cotton Stuffing

Sewing machine

5 Fat Quarter (please note you may have extra. I like using fat quarters to start with)

Fabric Requirements

Fabric A Grey

Fabric B Blue

Fabric C white

Fabric D Cranberry

Fabric E Natural

Steps 1

Create 4 sets of flying geese using your fabric D & E

Steps 2

Then cut Fabric A and C into two 12 X 3 1/2

Step 3

Cut Fabric B (2) 4x 4

Then you can piece them together base on my design or create your own. I genuinely love creating throw pillows and giving them out as holiday gifts to my friends

For this pillow I use a 1/4 stitch seam allowance. Usually I love creating designs that just jump out to me and become my own art work. While using this pattern you can repeat what I did or move around your pieces to create your own.

I decided to quilt my pillow using organic lines but I wanted to use different threads from the Aurifil collection because it offers a boho look that pops out beautiful earthy colors. That is one thing I really adore about the Aurifl threads there are so many ways to express your creativity through threads.

Like most pattern I know that it can be a little confusing but I am here to share and help you so if you have any questions make sure you follow me on Instagram. Simply DM or send me your questions and I will be more than happy to help.

Remember this is your art work and you are the master of your quilting design so create!
