Pillows

I've been on a pillow kick. Pillows are similar to mini quilts; you can experiment with colors and patterns in a small space.

FO: Raspberry and Aqua Pillow

This one is simple patchwork, but the colors really sing! The background is Painter's Canvas, by Laura Gunn. The patchwork center is a Lecien print, and that's what inspired this color combination.

The start of something

Next, I started this fun little piece, which Olias seems to like! The center is Tula Pink Meteor Shower, which I just love! I thought it paired nicely with Ellen Luckett-Baker's Quilt Blocks print. (P.S. Have you seen her new Kokka line sneak peeks??) Add a little Painter's Canvas, and some additional Tula Pink prints and voila!

Meteor Shower Pillow

Another fun pillow.

Stash Fabric has the Meteor Shower Print and the Painter's Canvas.

Pink Castle also has plenty of Tula Pink available, if you're interested in any of these prints!

For both pillows, I used an envelope closure.
Next time, I'm going to use a covered zipper, like this SMS tutorial.

In case you're interested in one of these pillows, I've listed them in my little Etsy shop.

Happy Thursday!
