One of my Mother’s Day gifts from my son and daughter-in-law in St. Louis was a two-yard length of some exciting fabric. I love the silhouettes of a hometown marching band with exploding fireworks (click on photo to see fabric design).
I used 1-½ yards to make myself a patriotic coverall apron with a nice big pocket.
I used the remainder to make a pillow and desk mat. Judy Martin (my favorite designer) had a BOM on her website called Star Cluster which I thought would work well with the fabric. I used the marching band fabric along with red/white/blue scraps to make a 16 inch block which became a pillow …
Like all of Judy’s designs, she has taken an easy pattern and added her own twists to make it unique.
Thank you to my St. Louis family for a gift that multiplied itself into three nice items.
