Strawberry Social Minis and More

Hello Everyone! I’m back with February’s Minis and More Parade mini, the Strawberry Social Mini by Margot Languedoc of  The Pattern Basket.  The parade is hosted by Michele and Sherri each month. Visit them to see how everyone finished their mini this month.

This is such a cute pattern and I decided it needed to be a pillow on my foyer bench. I love to make pillows. I can use them in so many places around the house.

I made just one row of strawberries using fabric from Bonnie and Camille’s Day Sail (navy) and The Good Life (aqua and red) fabrics. The background is Little Ruby and the borders are Handmade. I love the Little Ruby background. I’ve been saving this fabric and thought this was perfect to go along with the strawberries. The pillow form measures 22″ x 12″ so I adjusted the borders to make it fit. I made and envelope backing and sewed the binding on after putting the layers together.

As always with the pillows, they look great as a table topper, too! I took pictures on the table and almost decided to use it like this, although it does look good with my other spring and summer pillows.

Since it’s March and there are hopes of sunnier and warmer weather, I’m leaving them out and putting the winter pillows away for the year. If I still had a little girl’s room to decorate, this pillow would be really cute on her bed. Margot also has a full size Strawberry Social quilt that would be cute, too.

When I make a pillow, I back the top with batting and muslin, then quilt it before making the back of the pillow. I used Aurifil 50 wt cotton thread, number 2420, a peachy pink color. It blends perfectly with the borders and you can see it just a little in the background. The leaf quilting design is a new one for me. I’ve been watching a lot of Angela Walters YouTube videos and this is one of her go to designs. I quilted this on my Pfaff QE 4.0 domestic machine.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the parade of minis. I can’t wait to see what we are making in March.
