Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day: Quilted Pillow

For Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, I am sending one lucky commenter this quilted pillow cover.  It is made from leftovers from a quilt I have been working on this year.  It is a very traditional Jacob's Ladder block and the the color scheme and pattern are borrowed from this tutorial at Blue Elephant Stitches.  It measures 18" square and I've used a 20" Ikea pillow form.  (To save on shipping, the winner will only receive the quilted pillow cover, not a form as well).  It is a whopping 212 pieces, which were aided by strip piecing and Thangles.


I quilted this with some simple straight line quilting, echoing the pattern. It has a dotted fabric on the back with a zippered flap closure.

 



Here's what the quilt top looks like, made of all of these blocks.  I am in the slow process of hand quilting it with perle cotton.

Totally loving Bletchley Circle (on Netflix of course!). It's about a group of very clever codebreakers who solve a crime after they return to their normal lives post WW2.
