Pillow Love


I’ve been loving making pillows recently. They’re so quick and satisfying and cute. These two were made for my sister/brother-in-law and brother/sister-in-law for Valentine’s Day. My sister loves all things Japanese-cute so the top one was for her and her husband. It’s a log cabin — of the squares in squares variety — made from a cotton from Superbuzzy and cream and red linen. The second pillow, for my brother and sister-in-law, has a patchwork heart made of a sage flannel and cream chenille — sage and cream are the colors of their new quilt from my mom — machine appliquéd onto a cream linen. This gave me a little trouble but turned out well enough in the end and my sister-in-law seemed to like it. I have a feeling more pillows will be showing up here soon, I just can’t resist.

    I love the top pillow. There is something about a nice, white “frame” around a great print. Your VQB idea is excellent. So fun to watch the progress.

    Cute! I love the little tag on the top one. How did you finish the edges?

    I’ve been lurking for a while and finally had to comment and tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I too am curious about the tag. How did you make it?

    That tag is just a lovely addition. New pillowcases – one of those on the list of things to do. And time, need that too.
