For Pillow Making : :

Thank you all so very much for the kind words wishing my family and I a great weekend together as we remembered and celebrated my Dad's life. It was such a wonderful and comforting weekend!

My sister and her family will be here visiting for another week and have some sewing work for me! We looked through my fabric stash last night, picking fabrics together for a set of six 11"x18" and two 16" square pillows for their built-in breakfast nook and I'm excited to get started today!

LOVE!

Like me, my sister loves color, and was immediately drawn to the Anna Maria Horner prints I showed her. Since we don't have time to shop, my pretty large AMH stash will be just perfect for this project.

For Colorful Pillow Making

AMH Pillows

I can use a number of quilting cottons for the pillow fronts, adding in some of the Drawing Room collection I've been hording as my backing. The sateen home decor weight will give each pillow an extra sturdiness, while tying them all together by using one united fabric print for each of my pillow backs.

I hope that working with these fun, colorful fabrics will give me the boost in energy I so need to get back on track here. Wish me luck!

And how about you, have you started anything new lately?

  11. Maureen, amazing. I'm making pillows for my one of my 4 sisters, as she just had surgery to remove a cancerous lung tumor. So she needs some comfy items and pillows ought to do that.
    I love bright colors too!
    Using Amanda Jean (Crazy Mom QUilts) Bright Birch tree pattern for my pillow fronts, and making the backing envelope style as yours are. Thank you for brightening my day always, you're so positive. Diane

  15. Just catching up on your last couple of weeks:

    I'm so glad you had such a great Market, you totally deserved everything that got you there, and the praise and adulation you got when there.

    I hope the memorial for your dad went well, and that you're enjoying your time with your sister :o)
