Change is good. Change your hair color, your living room furniture, the needle in your machine…or even the center of your pillow. I heard my sister say “Let’s do hexagons.” I thought great, but plain. She said, “Let’s do one a month.” I thought great, but I’m not ready to make 12 crazy quilt pillows. Sooooo…we decided to change the hexagon center of the crazy quilt pillow.
In the antique shop I came across a vintage paper wrapper of pins with a beautiful lady on it. I ran it through my scanner and had exactly what I needed for the changeable center of the pillow. I ironed freezer paper to muslin (waxy side to fabric) and put it through the ink jet printer. It resulted in a slightly faded version of the original. But exactly what I was looking for.
We had used ribbons in the corners of the pillow hexagon center. So I put ribbons on the corners of the same size hexagon and, using a pillowcase finish, I was able to tie the beautiful lady hexagon on the center of the large square pillow. Now I can change the center hexagon out as often as I want and my sister will think it is a new pillow each time.
You can get your pattern right here. Change is good.
