Aura Improv Flower Pillow

3

The night before I was to teach my Improv Flower pattern at NW Quilting Expo this year, I realized that I had donated my final Improv Flower sample a few weeks before and I didn’t have anything for my class to show. So on a last minute sewing spree, I whipped up a version using the strike offs from my new Aura Fabric collection to show in the class and boy was I in love. I’d never made one with prints before and the play of the fabrics together really blew me away.

So with sample in hand, I walked the class through the process of creating their own improv flowers and wow was it like a garden in bloom.

So once things calmed down after a two week teaching spree of super fun awesome yay, I decided to quilt it up using the Hobbs Heirloom Fusible Cotton Batting and Superior Threads turquoise MicroQuilter thread.

It took a hot minute before I finally decided on the backing, but I went with the Canyon Sunset Texture Denim and oooh la la la la la la la la.

    Mathew, the batting that you used, I notice it is 80/20. Does it maintain loft better than 100%? I’ve never used a blend before ~ my purest side slaps my hand every time I reach for a blend. These are all beautiful! The colors of your fabrics are just stunning.
