Pillow Whisperer

Is sort of what I feel like right now!
The Spring Sprocket Pillow
The Tile Block Pillow
The I Don't Really Have a Name Pillow
And the newest addition, I'm Just Glad To Have Another WIP Off the Pile Pillow!
Ta Da!
This big guy is a supersized take on Camille Roskelley's Flower Girl pattern.
I made his "little sister" last year.
Aren't they sweet together!
"Big Brother" was made doubling the measurements for "Lil' Sis" with an added machine-sewn, hand appliqued hexagon flower in the center.  For quilting, I again chose to mark 1/4" dashes to hand quilt with just plain old embroidery floss.  This time, outlining "petals" on the inside as well as the outside.
The back is a pieced collection of purples, greens, grays and blues.  I was free piecing last winter and had a large enough section done to use for the back.
How fun is this!  There's enough purple there to make even KT jump back on the bandwagon!
Especially since they're her scraps!
I really need to give myself a kick in the patootie and work on this!
Hope this week sees you getting a lot done, smiling plenty and hugging your loved ones as often as you can!
Don't forget to get your quiltey fix at these linky parties!

  10. Pillows are such fun to make and almost instant gratification. It is nice to get something new and pretty without taking a bunch of time to complete.

  11. Your pillows are works of art to be studied rather than glanced at. I especially like the tile block pillow!


Love hearing from bloggers wherever you are!
