Orimono Christmas

So I’m sure you’ve seen the pillow from Anthropologie that looks like this.

I really liked the view of the back, so I snapped a picture of that too!

It’s really a great design, and I’ve wanted to try making it for a long time. Last week I was reading this post, and she made it look so easy that I made the decision to go for it, and make a potholder using this design. I’m so happy I did. I don’t have humongus scraps like some, simply because I only order the amount of fabric that I need, not wanting to waste any at all. The nice thing about this pattern is that you can use any size scrap that is available. Since all I have available are small and even tiny (under 1/2″) pieces, I was very happy to use them to make something so beautiful and useful.

I used 63 tiny pieces to make this potholder, nearly all of the prints from Amy Butler’s Lark collection. I quilted straight lines 1/2″ apart and then quilted perpendicular lines 1/2″ apart as well to give this potholder a nice tight grid.

This project was so enjoyable that I will be making atleast three more of these, and giving them in sets of two as Christmas presents to some dear friends of mine! I hope they love them!

More tomorrow!
