I thought you might like to see a couple extra things Kimberbell related that I have stitched in September. With all of the Hurricane Irma preps completed, I decided to go ahead and do some stitching before I lost power (which I usually do during any hurricane because I live on one of the barrier islands in Brevard county).
I thought since I was already in the Christmas mode, brought on by the Jingle All the Way quilt, I decided to do a Kimberbell Bench Pillow for Christmas. There is another Christmas pillow option on the Jingle All the Way CD, but I went with the traditional Kimberbell Deck the Halls bench pillow instead. I might tackle the other one on the CD if I have time before Christmas.
The camera on my Baby Lock Destiny made this Multi-hooped project much easier. By using templates and the camera I can line things up perfect without having to 'draw' all over my base fabric. Kimberbell included a few of the 3D items that she is known for on this pillow. The bows are made separate and then attached, and I also sewed on buttons for the decorations on the wreaths.

The next Kimberbell project that I decided to do was the Halloween Boo Bench Pillow. This one was a lot of fun. I got to use a stash of Halloween fabrics that I have been holding on to for several years. Its called Pumpkins Gone Wild by Sandy Gervais for Moda. One thing that was different about this pillow was the fact that there were no 3D touches. I am thinking maybe the cat should have some sparkly eyes??

The fabric line had a couple of panels included with it, so I used one of them for the back of the pillow.

I have enjoyed the 'escape' from the Jingle All the Way quilt, but it's time to get back to work on it. After the make up class next week, the third class will be held Tuesday October 3 at 10AM. I will post those blocks next week!
