Yoga is for Everyone

Recently I started attending yoga classes at a local gym.  It turned out that the owner of the gym, Roz, happens to have horses.  I had a horse many years ago, and I connected with her right away.  So when I saw the line of fabric called “Yoga is for Everyone” that combined yoga, horses and quilting, I knew I had to make something out of it!  I decided I would make a couple pillows for Roz.

This wasn’t a big complicated project, but I still wanted to stretch myself a little.  None of the pillow covers I had made so far were quilted (at least not by me).  Time to fix that.  I still wasn’t ready to drop the feed-dogs though, so instead I opted for some straight line quilting about 2″ apart using my walking foot.  But I didn’t want to spend time marking all the lines.  Fortunately my machine came with an attachment made specifically for sewing parallel lines.

The only problem was that when I used the attachment on my walking foot, the guide was too far back for me to see it very well.  So I went all “MacGyver” on it.  I used a bread bag twisty to attach a huge darning needle to the guide to lengthen it.  Since the darning needle was blunt, I didn’t have any problems with it catching on my pillow covers.  My solution earns zero style points, but it worked quite effectively.

I used the same invisible zipper tutorial from Katie Pedersen that I had used on previous pillows and ta da!  Two pillows with quilted covers.  Yay!
