Star Pillows – a Mini Finish

 

Well, you know how I have a massive amount of unfinished projects just sitting around? Including a whole box just of minis and leftovers from other projects? Turns out, some of them barely needed any work. Like, at all.

Say, for example, these pillows. Leftover blocks from my Fat Quarter Stars sampler, which I last worked on in October 2014. {Ugh. On the plus side, everything else in that post is now finished.} They were quilted a looooooong time ago – probably 2014, too. Look, one of them is even custom quilted! At this point, I don’t even remember why I kicked them out of the sampler…poor things.

{Check out the matched pattern on the blue one! #winning}

I pulled out my box o’ Stars and found two matching chunks of fabric for backings. Whipped together some nice envelope backs, serged the edges, and there we go – two finished pillows. It literally took me longer to order ribbon tags on Etsy to put on said pillows. Which I will NOT delay in doing so once they arrive. Hold me to that, folks.

And considering the actual quilt only needs the last round of borders, maybe it’s time to finish that one up, too…

In further adventures of either ‘CC is a jerkface’ or ‘CC thinks she’s a model’… Every time I put down the board!

Fabric is Minick & Simpson’s Charlevoix…long out of print, of course. They’re about 12″ square. Or approximately one half CC-size.

These are such a fun UFO finish. I love that you had the coordinating prints for backing in your stash as well. Almost all of my UFOs are unfortunately tops that need quilting. These are not easy finishes but I will start in on them after my memory quilt project. CC is adorable. Thanks for linking up with this week’s TGIFF.

A great way to finish up those little UFOs that are laying around. I agree CC is definitely a supermodel.
