Lost and Found Americana Porch Pillow

Hi Friends! I finally feel like I'm out of hibernation from being a twin mommy! Lately I've been making some pretty neat projects inspired by upcoming seasons and this project reminds me of fireworks, BBQ's, and summer. Lost and Found Americana designed by Jen Allyson for Riley Blake Fabrics is patriotic, vibrant, and simply stunning. 

I made a patchwork porch pillow, using an array of patriotic patterns from the line.

I come from a military family, so this fabric line is near to my heart and also July 4th is one of my favorite holidays because fireworks of course!

Details of pillow


I didn't use a specific pattern. Just measured the pillow insert and went from there. The fabric prints were so pretty, I thought the best way to showcase them was with a freehand type of design. Here's what I started off with and it just grew from there. My favorite print is the little girl holding the flag.


Freehand patchwork design


I hand quilted in random spots that I felt would look pretty. I think it came out quite nice!

I used the stripes for the binding to bring it all together. The back of the pillow has the American eagle blue print. I thought it was perfect for the back.
