Published Categorized as Finished Projects, Pattern 4 Comments on Shabby Chic Shasta Lightning Bolt Camper Pattern Update

I couldn’t help but give it the longest title ever cause I love it so much 😛 I am so excited to share this latest update to my camper appliqué pattern, It’s subtle but now there’s a Shasta lightning bolt version of the camper.

Shasta Lightning Bolt Appliqué

I used this pattern update to work on my own appliqué techniques with my machine and while I can definitely improve on my small curves I still love the shabby chic look of this camper project.

About the Pillow

Shasta Camper Pillow Finished

To demo the appliqué update I used all fabrics from my scrap stash to make a pillow for my mom for her birthday (remember, 2015 is the pillow gift year.) I appliquéd the pattern onto Essex Linen in Natural using Heat n’ Bond lite and a mix of Gunternberg and Metler threads to do a zig-zag appliqué stitch.

Applique Camper Pillow

This is the first time I’ve used the really neat taper corner feature on my Pfaff machine. I’m happy with how it came out and I’m excited to practice this technique more with a couple upcoming projects this spring! (Jenn, I’m looking at you and your quilt on this one!!!)

Flange on pillow front

I used a 3/4″ strip of Kona white fabric, also from my stash, to add a flang to the pillow for a little extra detail. I love the look of the crisp white cotton against the natural linen. So shabby-chic pretty!

Happy birthday Mom!!
