Inspired by a classic design， we have this new First Love Pillow to share with you by Fat Quarter Shop. We love the look of diamonds， but piecing on point is not our favorite. So， we came up with a new piecing technique to create that look with straight rows. As a bonusaccent pillow case baby canvas housewarming gift， there is virtually no waste! It finishes at 17″； and makes a posh office accent.
We selected our four prints from the Yes， Please collection from Riley Blake Fabrics for the striking combo of black， white and rose gold metallic! It’；s our favorite color lately. To let the rose gold shine， we quilted it minimally with straight lines. We selected a matching thread color and used our Patchwork foot #37 as a guide along our seams. Simple as that!personalized graduation frames
The simple quilting also serves to add a secondary effect of its own. See how it creates these beautiful mini four-patches! Use the quilting to create your desired effect. Add color pop with a complementary hue， give the look of handwork with longer， heavier stitches， or use a wavy serpentine stitch for flair!

As I was driving home tonight, I pulled into our circle drive, rather than the garage. I entered our home through a different door, and with a fresh perspective. One of the only reminders of where the home started is the front door itself and the blessing written in chalk just above it. I walked in and realized I was thankful for so many things – so many little decisions that once felt overwhelming, but collectively, feel so right.
This traditional seamstress craft is easy to make in a few minutes. You will need 7-8 inch circle of fabric (you can use a small salad plate to trace the fabric out if you are unsure of the size) or Spoonflower has a great kit here by Anda preprinted.
