Mod Flower Pillow : :

Flower Pop Pillow

Sorry I am late today! Since Friday afternoon, in-between volunteering, movie watching, soccer games, birthday parties, and packing, I have been in a Rock & Romance trance-like quilt making state! I have never been so focused on finishing something in all my days of sewing! I am very excited about this, but I have to wait just a little longer before all can be revealed...

So today, I'm sharing this cute, little applique pillow I whipped up the other day! I was inspired by an applique I saw in either Mini Boden or Johnnie B, and my Stockholm fabric from Contemporary Cloth.

an idea

Since I love combining felt and fabric, making appliques, and of course, pillows. I sewed up this new design to try. I love how stitchy it is. And the aqua, navy, yellow, and grey color combo is always a winner!

Flower Pop Pillow

Right away, it reminded me of one of my very favorite color mosaics from a post I shared back in May!

color inspiration -- Mustard, Green, Aqua, Blue, Grey, & Black

Which I'm sure is why I especially like how the back of this one turned out! Simply Color + my favorite Bryant Park print (sorry, I can't find a source.)

Flower Pop Pillow Back

I've listed it in my etsy, and I'm still deciding if I should make more in a variety of color combos?

I have to say.. I quite like this one with my new sewing chair! What do you think??

Wishing you all a late, but wonderful start to a new week!   Maureen

Gorgeous, as usual. It would look right at home on my couch! And of course I love that color palate-- reminds me of our improv chevron quilt!

It's such a great pillow. I agree; the color combo is definitely a favorite of mine. And stitchy is a great adjective to describe this pillow!
