Stitching up a seasonal cushion with the PFAFF performance icon by Sarah Vanderburgh October 26, 2020 written by Sarah Vanderburgh October 26, 2020 465 This year, where I live fall has been particularly beautiful, thanks to the lingering fall colors. I have all the inspiration I need to turn a handful of bright scraps into a quilted seasonal project! Join me this week as I use some of the built-in features on the PFAFF performance icon to create a quilted fall accent pillow cover. Quilted fall accent pillow cover It’s especially important to me this year to make projects using what I have on hand to bring joy into my home. Creating with the PFAFF performance icon means that every step of the way I can find a feature or accessory to help me make my creations come to life. I also realized as I was finishing this project that it could be viewed as the largest pincushion I’ve ever made! LOL! Quilted fall accent pillow with PFAFF performance icon. This is a scrap busting project, but you could cut into your stash for variety instead. Use different fabrics to create scrappy strips cut to the lengths listed below. materials fabric Orange pieces (18) 2½” squares Black pieces (2) 3″ squares (2) 1½” x 12½” strips (4) 1½” x 8½” strips (2) 1½” x 14½” strips White pieces (2) 3″ squares (2) 1½” x 8½” strips (2) 1½” x 14½” strips Backing panels (1) 12½” x 18″ (1) 12½” x 7½” Fabric for pillow front backing 14½” x 20½” Batting 14½” x 20½” 3″ x 14½” piece INSPIRA Fast and Easy Tear-A-Way Light temporary stabilizer Fabrics I’ve chosen for this project I’ve reviewed some of my favorite features of the PFAFF performance icon machine before, especially the automatic needle threader and the convenient location of the function buttons. For this project, I really appreciated the large accessory tray with its space for several presser feet and bobbins. Keeping these items organized makes it easy to switch them out and use different ones to improve the look of my final project.
