October # 9 Challenge Applique & Orange

Mini Mania strikes again!  
Leslie got us to put our thinking caps on....all applique and a shot of orange.  
Well, I love orange so there was no problem for me!:)
Looks kinda lumpy on the sides but you know there is a reason.

Had this top leftover from the seven samples made for the Angled Frames tutorial
Perfect for a background so cutting a piece from the upper right corner another....
....pillow was created!
A few buttons, some embroidery and a bit of quilting was all it took.
A couple more sections cut out for the envelope back.
Our shower curtain was my inspiration!:)
The pillow insert is one from our couch and a bit too snug but it worked for picture taking.  Now it is packed away with the others until the house is finished.
Happy Ghosty Day to you from me, Mr. Pumpkin-head and the Bride of Frankenstein. app...I'm on Instagram!!

1st finish of 4th quarter.


  1. I love it, and so much hand sewing....well done you. Did you hand sew the appliquéd pieces? I am afraid I am not on instagram....just a step too many for me.

  2. Whee! I love it DeeRoo! Super cute and loved seeing the inspiration shower curtain. This makes a great pillow. I'm wondering - what is all the quilty goodness in the background behind the pillow??

  3. I love this! What a great source of inspiration too!! Will pop over to IG to see what you've been up to there

  4. Very clever. I would have never thought to cut up a quilt top! Brilliant!!! Visiting as part of the 2015 FAL Cheerleading Team. Thanks for participating.
