Get ready to travel in style with this month’s In Stitches with Fat Quarter Shop’s pillow project! The Meadow Slumber Pillow is perfectly sized to tote along on your car or plane ride, and it’s sew adorable that all of your fellow travelers will be begging you for your secret! Be prepared for jaws to drop when you tell them that you made it!
This beautiful pillow uses five of the fabrics from the beautiful new Meadow collection by Camelot and Aurifil 50 wt in Light Robin’s Egg color 2710! As soon as we got the Meadow collection in we couldn’t wait to create something with those beautiful and trendy florals! We’re loving those light navy prints, and we added the Meadow White Bouquet to the back for a bold pop of contrast!
