While I was in the middle of hosting my Soccer Mom series I needed a mindless project one Sunday afternoon so I dumped out all of my scraps triangles that were cut off from my Herringbone quilt blocks and stitched them up into pillows.
The pretty pillow my sister made me y goes perfectly with them.What happened to the quilt? you might be thinking. Well, it's not quilted yet. I tend to have machine quilting problems and I just couldn't quite face it, so it is sitting in my unfinished projects box.
And then I got to thinking all those bright colors just might be a little too crazy for my bed. I was walking through Target and spotted this lovely soft muted purple quilt for just $35 and I knew this would work better. Don't worry I will still be finishing and using that beautiful Herringbone.
The pillow top is quilted along the seam lines and I tried out a button closure on the back. It's not perfect but it works and I am happy my buttonholes turned out.
I have a couple of more pillow ideas floating around in my head. Here's to hoping to get to them soon!
