Sew and Tell Friday

Here they are....all four living together happily!!! The last two pillows are complete. I think i got a few measurements a little wonky but it did not matter too much because i could still stuff my old pillows in there.
I had just enough of the old curtain to make a envelope back for each one! Hooray!!
This one, above, is much like my improv wall hanging that i made with Wee Play scraps. I just grabbed and sewed and then quilted it in concentric squares with straight lines.
I chose a disappearing nine patch pattern for this pillow and then i just random straight line quilted it. I love that it made a whirlygig in the middle.

Each one is different but all go together. It is Friday so be sure to go and check out all the other finishes at Amylouwho's.

Such a cheerful assortment of fabrics! I love how they are all a little different.

Love how they all match, but all different!! My favorite is the disappearing nine patch. It is fun to see it sitting next to the nine patch, only a quilter would know the secret!!!

Blessings,

KT

love them! they go so well w/ your couch, too! I still haven't started on the pillows for our L.R. Love yours, I may have to copy off you :) I know, I'm a cheater. I'm going to be on Long Isl for 3 wks or so in March. I hope I can see you! I'm hoping to get up to WP while I'm there. I'll bring a quilt to bind or something so we can fulfill our dream of sewing together. High aspirations, I know! Love Avery's pin layout! She and Joshua would get along well. He loves to "or-nize"

Love all your pillows. They do look great together. I like the random improv piecing idea and your straight line quilting. I tried that recently for the first time and it's such fun. Thanks for sharing.
