Calypso Swing Pillow { Mark Cesarik Preview }

Mark Cesarik will be vising the blog on Friday, 02/18 to talk about his new fabric line with Free Spirit, Calypso Swing.

Mark sent me some fabric to experiment with and I came up with a few different things to show you, the first of which is a pillow. I mixed some Kona solids in coordinating colors and came up with this simple design.

The squares in this pillow are all 3". There are a few other items I'm working on, (you can see them in my flickr stream) but I haven't finished them yet.

I promise I'll show them as I finish them.

See you tomorrow,

  6. I like the pink explosions on the corners, they drew my eyes to the patterns. I liked the sharp quilting too! Great work

  10. Hi, I love this fabric and the colors you put with it! I'm a new quilter and I have a question for you. You say that the squares are 3" - is that the final size? Do you cut them as 3 1/2 inch squares (to allow for a 1/4" seam)? Sorry - hope it's not a stupid question!!! Thanks!
