Description

Sweetwater has a great subscription program called "Label Crew" - each month you get a pattern for a small project along with 2 labels - one is the label for the month, the other is a label with your name. You can buy the projects without enrolling in the program but it costs a bit more (and you don't get the personalized label). I've been thinking about subscribing for some time, and I finally decided to do it when I saw their cute pillow for October.

This pillow is 16" square and uses 48 - 2.5" squares. I used a mini charm pack of Persimmon by Basic Grey for Moda and then added some 2.5" squares from my scraps (mostly fabrics from the PG&J collection by Basic Grey). I used a piece of linen for the center square.

There were no directions for attaching the label so I trimmed it slightly and then used fusible backing to get it to stick to the pillow before simply top stitching 1/4" around the perimeter. I decided to use orange thread to make this one a little fun - and quilted straight line squares around the pillow.

The back is pieced with more PB&J and has a hidden zipper.

I decided to save my personalized name label for a bigger project.

I love this little pillow - it reminds me of Thanksgiving and gets me in a bit of the holiday spirit!

Love this pillow! I thought about joining the 'Label Crew' but wasn't sure what/how to use it - now I know! might just have to join the club after all. Love the Persimmon too.

Sewhappy Thank you! It was fun to get the pattern and labels in the mail ... all for less than $8 (including shipping). They have such cute projects...I'm looking forward to seeing what they do in November :)
