Moda…designer pillow blog hop

Good Morning Everyone…I hope some of you are checking out my blog for the first time and hope you come back again!…Since I am the “newest” Moda designer, I have the least to work with…I currently only have 5 sku’s! The primitive muslins in all the same colors, shades of tan…So whats a girl to do with this limited pallet?  Stay in it of course!   Lissa asked us to design a pillow that describes ourselves…Well I guess that would mean I would be using WOOL!   Here is my simple pillow…so simple it needs no pattern!  How green is that?

The pillow background is the darkest shade in the primitive muslin line cut 12″ x 16″.  Cut a 3″ square of the following: 1 of the lightest and two each of the next two shades.  Then from various cream/tan wools I traced on fusible web and cut 5 wool circles of 2 1/4″,  5 wool circles-1 1/2″ and then 5 wool circles-1″.  Place the 5 squares in a row at the center of your pillow background.  Stitch in a 1/4″ around the five squares.  Place the circles onto each of the 5 squares and iron with steam.  Blanket stitch with Valdani O196 #12 perle cotton around each penny, stitching to the next penny using long stitches.  Make a back and stitch right sides together leaving a 4″ opening.  Turn right side out and stuff…stitch opening closed.

Now for all those questions….

What is a little know fact about yourself?…I always try to do everything to the best of my ability…no half-a**ing from me.  This also means I expect this from everyone around me also…I have surrounded myself with great people and great things have happened to me…I am very blessed.

How do you relax?…I many ways now…I love spending time on our boat, but that is obviously seasonal…I get messages now and then… and I exercise and get mani-pedi’s when I can… A girl’s got to take care of herself!

What do you sleep in? I sleep in pajama pants and a matching pajama shirt…I love Nick & Nora…from Target!

What kind of pillow do you like?  I like a firm feather pillow that I can hug…

Did I sleep with a stuffed animal?  I don’t know…but I do remember that one Christmas I got a doll and all my brothers got cool trucks and sports stuff…I was so mad I threw the doll down the basement stairs…yes…you guessed it…I was a major TomBoy!

Do you sew in bed, Read watch TV eat?  No I do not sew in bed…i am very good at losing needles and that would not be a great place for me to sew…surely they would end up “stuck in” Nick somewhere…I do read, when there is not too much going on…if I have a lot on my place I don’t trust myself reading…I would stay up all night because I need to know what happened…so that can me dangerous for me…If it were up to me I would not watch any TV in bed….but Nick loves to…I never eat in bed…

How many night have you or your spouse spent on the couch…None…I love my bed…

Nighttime toddy?  Nope…but only when we are away doing shows…helps me fall asleep in the hotel bed…

Early to bed or all nighter?  I love to go to bed…so i am ready about 9:30-10:00 then I am usually up by 5am…

Who would I most like to have a pillow fight with? Brad Pitt with his little loin cloth on from TROY!  Yeah…now were talking…

Now tomorrow you need to visit Edyta from Laundry Basket Quilts…I just love going to market and talking with her…the girl knows her stuff…visit her at:   http://www.laundrybasketquilts.com/blog/index.php

I have been trying for hours to figure out how to put this image on my side bar where the ugly box is under Moda designer blog hop…can anyone tell me how to do it?

I can place it here..

    Wonderful pillow, I love working with wool too.
    I have gotten the new tea stained fabrics, from light to darks, they are wonderful to work with.

    I really like this tone-on-tone version of your pillow…and that is it green!
    Very calming!!
    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Lisa! I like your “primitive” pillow. This is the first time I am reading your blog. Congratulations on your first 5 sku’s with Moda.

    What a great pillow! I am relatively new to quilting, so haven’t used wools yet. I’ve bookmarked your page and look forward to visiting again. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  7. February 20, 2011 at 9:19 am

    Very lovely pillow even if you don’t have any bright colors to work with. Shades of tan are lovely too, and I like your rosetts.

    I’ll have to try those tea dyed fabrics.
    Try going to your blog template and adding the gadget and then move it where you want it. Don’y know much about wordpress blog layouts…but that’s what you do on blogger.com

    Please do not post…….but, would you consider changing your background color to white and your lettering to black…..my old eyes find it hard to read the wonderful information that you are providing…..please do not take offense…..I just want you to have tons of readers coming back……if you check out on the internet…..you will find that the eyes first focus on the background and white is the easiest…..and then the letters which should be dark….ie black……that’s why books are printed on white/beigish pages and then the lettering is black…..again, wishing you tons of success……….thank you for your patience and consideration…..Carolyn at marzstars@msn.com

    What a great pillow! It’s nice that you get to design for Moda. I have bought patterns off your website several times in the past. It’s fun to check your online shop to see what’s new. My stash of wool has grown, now I have to store some of it at my daughter’s. Thanks for sharing.

  13. February 20, 2011 at 9:33 am

    I love your pillow! Sorry about leaving this comment on your preceding blog post. I’m having trouble with the dark background/type.

    As usual, I love the pillow. I’m hooked on working with wool since I’ve seen your projects. Your right about surrounding yourself with great people. I’ve only been to your shop twice, but everyone has been very helpful and super nice. Meet Jessie this last time; what a sweetie.


  17. February 20, 2011 at 9:48 am

    Very sweet pillow! I would love to take one of your classes – looks like so much fun and the final project is just beautiful

  18. February 20, 2011 at 9:50 am

    I adore anything made with wool and your pillow is no excepetion.

  19. February 20, 2011 at 9:50 am

    Love the pillow… might have to do that in different colors here.

    I love your pillow. Super simple yet pretty. I think it is time I started sewing with wool. I love to hand stitch pennies and do applique work. Your fabric is so nice. I have 2 colors. Thanks for letting us get to “meet” you. Look forward to many more years.

    guess I commented on the wrong place. See I am all new to this. Like your pillow very much, and expecially with wool. very nice!!

  23. 26 Sarah
    February 20, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Great pillow – I didn’t realize that the wool is patterned until I zoomed in on the picture. I’m so glad that wool is still around; it’s gotten so much scarcer over the years with all the emphasis on fleece especially.
    I am a perfectionist also – it keeps me from being able to whip out projects, but I have completed some that I’m very happy with… although there are probably some things that, if I did it over, I’d do a little differently… sigh

    A very simple pillow that would look nice with so many decors. I love your Summer Gatherings book. I hope to visit your store again in Spring. stay warm, deb-bee (Wisc.)

  25. February 20, 2011 at 10:28 am

    Thanks Lisa for the little insight into your life. 🙂
    I like your pillow..very stylish..The pattern reminds me of tree discs..

  26. February 20, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Thank you so much for the great color pallet of muslin and the cute pillow pattern. I love and own a few of your patterns an books. Also am currently doing the Lisa’s Flower Garden BOM. Keep up the great designing!

  28. February 20, 2011 at 10:40 am

    This is my first time on your blog. I scrolled down a bit and love that wool pattern, the bird on the branch. What pattern is that?

  29. February 20, 2011 at 10:42 am

    Such a great pillow, love the details and the neutral palette.

  30. February 20, 2011 at 10:48 am

    I love your pillow! One of my next quilts (I already have the fabrics organized) is going to be this type of palette. I love all the neutrals together!

    Sorry – I posted this under your last entry so you’ll get it twice by mistake.

    Love that pillow and the primitive muslins – they’re on my list! I added your blog to my reader subscriptions this morning and have enjoyed getting to know you and your “stuff”. I’ve just branched out into wools and am really looking forward to doing more.

    February 20, 2011 at 11:07 am

    It was very hard to read what you had to say with the black background and black and red type – the white type shows up nicely. I must admit, I do not know much about your designs and fabrics, but if you are connected to Moda, you must be great so I will make it a point to learn more. Glad we have had this opportunity to meet and learn about all the moda designers, it has been fun.

    Love your pillow and I’m so glad someone finally designed a muslin palette. Civil War fabrics are a favourite of mine and the different shades of muslin are perfect for this type of fabric.

  36. February 20, 2011 at 11:20 am

    Hi Lisa, I do love your pillow! Simple and charming.
    Please, though, change your font color. My poor eyes literally can not
    read the black print on the deep grey background. I have no idea what all you said in
    your pillow talk answers!

    February 20, 2011 at 11:45 am

    GREAT pillow!! I love simple and the pillow is perfect to show off some of my hand dyed wools. But, I DO need to purchase some of your muslin line, it would be perfect for so many projects. I have signed up for your newsletter, hope you schedule some classes for my neck of the woods- coastal North Carolina. Bye!

  41. February 20, 2011 at 11:56 am

    Love the pillow! Congrats on becoming a Moda designer. I am new to wools but love the look and the felting process.

    I love the new muslin and your pillow is awesome. This is my first time to your blog. I reall like how you have the slide shows of quilt shops, etc., and how they keep going all the time. I’ll certainly be coming back to visit!

    I like the effect of the long blanket stitches on your pillow. At first I thought it was a print.

    Pretty pillow! Enjoyed reading about you.

    Oh my gosh, your pillow is just gorgeous. Thank you so much for the pattern! I love prim … along with all other types of quilting and stitching. I was also having a little trouble with the dark background but I really enjoyed your post and I cracked up when you told us you would like to have a pillow fight with Brad Pitt while he wore only the loin cloth…LOLOLOL. Hugs…

    Your pillow is beautiful. It looks like a mosaic.
    I was scouting out your website this morning and hope to look some more.

  62. February 20, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    Keep those wools coming……I can never have too many colors of wool.

    I wish you continued success……I wish I could teach you how to move the button to where you want it, I’m hopeless at it……when you learn it do a tutorial for the rest of us :0).

    Happy Sewing

  63. February 20, 2011 at 2:32 pm

  65. February 20, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Yes, congrats on joining that wonderful Moda group! Thanks for the beautiful pillow instructions….much simpler to make than it looks!

  66. February 20, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Love your pillow/I have now added you to my favorites. Did you get help with the Pillow Talk button yet? I have a Google blog & there is a side bar where you can add “gadgets” when you are logged in. It must be similar. Good luck!

  79. February 20, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    Your pillow is very beautiful … rich and chocolate-y 🙂 … This is my first trip to your blog, don’t know why. I’ll be back though as your work is wonderful and I thank you for sharing!!

    So agree with you about reading– I’ve been known to hold my eyes open so I can finish a book in the wee hours!!
    Love your pillow!

    You won’t mind if I joined you in your pillow fight, would you? I have a “Troy” poster and Brad watches over me while I am in slumberland.

    I am liking neutral colors more and more and really enjoy the design of your pillow! And the wool gathering in the following posting–the wool photographs so beautifully!

    I had to take my time to read your blog–my poor eyes don’t handle the white font on black very well. I can barely see my typing in this gray comment box. Ah! The joys of aging eyes. And I missed my Sunday afternoon nap. Wow, that does make me sound a bit…aged!

    I like your pillow. This is the first one that I think I’d like to make for my DD. She likes various neutrals but also wants colors. Thanks for the pattern & info. BTW I think reading black on gray is easy on the eyes.

    For a brown pillow this is beautiful. If you had asked me if I’d like a brown pillow I would say no, but this is gorgeous. You did very well. Love the nurtrals.

    I have been looking at your new primitive muslins and it’s nice to meet the designer behind those wonderful colors. Love the penny pillow – the stitching is perfect. This is my first visit to your blog and enjoy the read. Thanks for the stop on the pillow blog tour.

    Hi Lisa, I love all of your stuff. Just a comment on trying to fix your image so it appears on the right side bar… It looks like the image that appears that you want is referenced by and the one that is broken on the right side is referenced <img src="/Users/lisa/Desktop/ptalk.gif". Maybe try changing to . Just a guess. Not sure how all your images are stored on the server.

    Love the shades of muslin–finally someone did it. Your pillow is lovely with the wool applique.

    Your line is so totally different from most of the fabric lines anywhere. It will be very interesting to incorporate the earthiness of these pieces into my ideas …should fit right in here in Iowa!

    Hello! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!

    I am a 32 year old guy living with my girlfriend of three
    years in Sydney. Dont lock into a deal in haste just because the moving company offered you the
    lowest price quote. He also worked during that time for the Sydney Herald
    and the Sydney Monitor and moved to the town of Geelong.
