Echo Pillow : :

I finished my Echo Pillow! I really love these fabrics and think this pillow looks pretty good sitting in my favorite chair!

My plan was to make pillowcases out of these for my bedroom, but when my very best friend told me how much she loved them, I had to make her a pillow!

tangerine + grey + teal + black

It was a good excuse for me to practice my quilting.

Straight lines scare me!

I love the back. If I had enough fabric, I'd make a set using just these two prints as the front for another pillow.

And, maybe even one more for myself...

Happy sewing!

  2. Great job! I love the fabric, especially the back. What fabric did you use on the back?

    1. Thanks Katy! The back is more Echo! You can find them in the shop of my sponsors Fresh Squeezed Fabrics and The Intrepid Thread!

  3. cute! I thought these were supposed to be for a bed quilt for your bedroom? pillows are great though, do you use a pillow form inside or just stuff it?

  4. I knew it - very pretty. I'm even more determined to turn my Echo stash into a large quilt for our bedroom, now, when I find the time. Hopefully I can manage it until our wedding in August, seems ludicrous, though.

    And, for what it's worth, straight lines scare me, too! :)

  6. Great pillows, I love how you quilted it using turquoise/ aqua thread. I usually go with just white for quilting, I really should get out of my comfort zone and try something new. It definitely makes it more interesting.
