When my eldest unmarried was invited to a little friend's birthday I jumped at the chance to make him a present.
I started with Kristy's lovely digger paper pieced pattern (had some fun with fussy cutting) then added some chevron tracks down each side to pad the design out to the size I needed.
For the very first time, I added some quilting to the pillow (I usually skip this step for pillows).
I used a bright yellow thread and echo stitched around the digger block and also the grey track chevrons. I used a stitch length of 4 ... they are bulky and boyish.
It has my usual envelope backing (one day I'll do a zipped one ... pinky promise) which I stitched with the same bright yellow cotton.
I love making boys stuff ... the Tomboy within is strong!
