A patchwork cross pillow

Well after my moan about not finishing things. I am working on the last few details of Jakob's room. The pillow to match his quilt has finally been made up. It sits on the black couch and just gives that part of the room a colour punch. I love doing cross quilts and feel another one coming on.

I am doing more DIY (gasp I know) and upgrading an old set of drawers for the final storage in Jakob's room. Hope to post that finish soon.

If you go to my previous post you can see all the details about how this is made from businessman's shirts which I got at the Op Shop (thrift store)

  1. I love that design and how colorful it is. Nice job! :)
    I have a bunch of unfinished projects in my craft room too! I am horrible about finishing things, but I've noticed that blogging has helped me with that a little! :)

    1. Oh Jen I do agree. I am getting things finished (albiet very slowly) as at least then I can blog about things I have done! So blogging does help the finishing

    1. I think they were all from the same man. As I got 7 at the same time for $0.50 each.

  4. I bought a quilting magazine recently because it featured a cross quilt on the cover. I'd never seen one 'til then. Now I have been cutting five squares from all my jelly roll strips and planning a cross quilt of my own. I hadn't thought of a pillow, but I may make that first, just for the practise, now that I've seen yours. Thanks. ~ Linne

    1. Ooh can't wait to see yours. I did not do squares but two squares and one length for each one. As each cross has a middle section - if you are using jelly rolls then you could cut a 6.5inch length and two 2.5inch squares for each cross. But whatever works for you or is easier for you.
