One More Pillow : :

Chicopee Patchwork Pillow - one more!

Chicopee Patchwork Pillow

This week is going to be an extra busy one for crown making especially, but I do plan to make a little time for finally finishing Kaiden's Making Rows Quilt, for beginning at least a few quilt blocks for those last two quilts I need to make in time for Christmas, and for hopefully more pillow making. This time using some Anna Maria fabrics, maybe one or two in the Indie I have leftover from my Symmetry Quilt, and some more in Chicopee charms!

LOVE!

Indie

I had forgotten how much I love making patchwork pillows and I think my skills have improved quite a bit from all the quilts I've made these past few months. Finishing pillows with a little binding is my new favorite thing!

There's a story behind this pillow and those ones I shared last week, beginning with some news that broke my heart and ended with me being able to take the money I made from selling them and send it as a small gesture with my love & prayers to help someone I love very much. All of your comments, likes & shares led to quick sales and I thank you all for helping me do that!

Wishing you all a wonderful & productive new week!    Maureen

  5. I love these pillows :) and you have a fantastic stash! I really want to order my son one of your crowns, but I worry that his name is too long to fit on one.

  8. So pretty. Your pillows have inspired me to finally decide on how I want to use the fabric I bought for some throw pillows back in July. I've finally found a quilty design I like that I think I can manage - since I don't quilt much. :) Thanks so much.

  10. The pillows are beautiful and I really like the binding. It looks like the pillow is framed. I'm sorry you were heartbroken but glad the pillows helped.
