After finishing my quilt "Thirteen's a Charm", included in Serge and Merge Quilts, I fortunately had a few pieces left over. Since this quilt is one of my very favorites, I wanted to add to its splendor by accenting it with pillows. Four blocks became a pillow top and a few of the fun prairie points poke out of the pillow edge.
And still I had fabric left, how lucky was I? Not enough to make more of the same design, another break. I had the opportunity to once again think in a new direction. What new design would work with my serged strips?
I decided to crosscut the strips into bars, various widths to add variety. What fabric could be added between? Perhaps a crisp white for a sharp, fresh look. This seemed to be working.
Yes, indeed, I was more than pleased with my Serged Bar Pillows. They are, without a doubt, my new favorite especially when I add my "Thirteen's a Charm" pillow.
And, with that addition, the pile got just too high and my pillow world came tumbling down.
