Love Letter Sew-Along.. with the Featherweight Shop!
by April Henry

Love Letter Pillow Sewalong

Well, the girls and I have decided it's time we have a little quilting sew-along.  By girls, I mean, the Featherweight Shop girls, of course!  Yes, all those packages you receive that are neatly wrapped with a little ric-rac bow... well, you've inspired the wrappers to start a sewing project, too!

So, with Valentine's Day around the corner, we thought it would be fun to make a "Love Letter Pillow" by ellis & higgs.  Would you like to grab your Featherweight and join us?

Love Letter Pillow and Mini Quilt by ellis & higgs

Supplies Needed: 

Pattern (available for purchase download here)

Quarter Inch Foot or Guide

Walking Foot

Thread (dove grey is the best neutral color!)

Fabric - see color diagram below
12" x 16" Pillow Form

Helpful Notions (Optional):  Thread Stand, Cutting Mat & Rotary Cutter, Cutting Ruler, Quilter's Pressing Fleece, Seam Ripper, Binding Baby, & Flower Spindle

I will begin the preparations in the next week and post progress as I make the sample for our first Featherweight Shop Sewing Night and Sew Along on Thursday, January 25th.  That way, you can sew along at your own pace and refer back anytime you need to.

The pattern can be completed using some of the fabric scraps you may already have on hand, but if you want to find some fun lovely Valentine florals, then be sure to pop over to Donna's Lavender Nest

She is like a little kindred spirit when it comes to vintage, florals and fabric and she knows exactly what you'll need.  She's even put some lovely kits together that are all ready to go...
