Lots of Pillows!



Our old pillows were getting pretty shabby - so I decided to redo and give some of the others a little face lift. The material was from an old quilt top that had pieces in very bad shape - so I cut it down and free motion quilted the heck out of it and then made the top into pillows. The tan pillows were not in too bad a shape - so I put some applique on top of them from the same quilt top. I use regular bed pillows (feather) for the large pillows and put two padded pillow protectors on them to make them extra squishy. They are much more comfortable than the pillow forms you can buy at craft stores! Great for a nice nap on the couch! The small square pillow was made over from left over quilted fabric, denim and buttons.

I found your blog through the blog
catalog. I just love your quilts they're the style i like. Applique is my favorite hand work as well. I have always done hand quilting but am starting to machine quilt now. I'm getting impatient. Love your work.

Hi, I was working my way around the More Quilting for Fun ring and found your blog. I've been quilting for 16 years and I also love applique. I enjoyed reading your blog :)
