From French Country Check to Modern Stripes

I finally finished the pillow cover that was on my project list.
I am thrilled with how it turned out.

This silk fabric started out as a green checked fabric.
It was given to me by a sweet friend.
At the time I knew that I really liked the colors, but wasn't sure what I would do with it.
I wasn't completely sold on the checks, but what if I could make stripes.

So, I cut out what seemed like a thousand green colored squares, pinned them together,
sewed them up, and now they are stripes.

This was a lot of cutting, sewing, and ironing for 1 pillow cover,
but it was totally worth the effort.
My master bedroom mini makeover is one step closer to being done.


  1. That's awesome, Nikki!! Good job!

  2. Wow, the pillow turned out great! I agree with your decision to use stripes instead of checks. You have a lot of patience for cutting and sewing all of those squares. Great job!
