Description

My sister, Paula (+dtscrapper ) was "Queen" in June for our Thread Divas Bee and she asked for blocks which coordinate with the 2wenty thr3e Collection by Eric and Julie Comstock of Cosmo Cricket for Moda. After making a couple of blocks for her, I had a lot of little triangles which I decided to piece together and make a pillow. Paula is moving to a new home in August (yay!) and I thought a pillow might must be the perfect housewarming gift!

This pillow measures 18" X 18" and sports a pieced back with hidden zipper. I had fun using some of my 2wenty thr3e fabric along with some coordinating colors from my scrap bin and some great neutral grays (including a print by Tim Holt which I love).

Enjoy, Paula!!!

I love it, of course. Love all the fabrics, and the side strips, and blue polka dot corners, and back..... pillow perfection!

Caribousmom

Readerowl Thanks, Karen :) It is so much fun to make pillows from left over scraps - very satisfying!

I hope you made this private so Paula can't see it! I was hoping to turns my trimmed corners into HST's to send to Paula but alas they remain in my project bin in little pile of triangles. What a cute pillow (no surprise there) and a big congrats to Dtscrapper ! I really like the introduction of the navy here. Take note Eric and Julie!

This is wonderful! What a great house warming gift for her. No wonder I have adopted you...you are the best sister. What is the printed fabric you used?

Love this pillow Wendy...will be a nice companion to Paula's Quilt. She will love it.

HawkFan

Wonderful housewarming gift and I am so envious of your stash of dark gray fabrics!

Great pillow, Caribousmom . Paula will love it. I have that fabric that looks like tickets--don't know what line it is but I was toying with using that for her blocks but was uncertain how they'd look. They sure look great in her pillow. She will be very happy!

Terryt1955 Thanks, Terry - she got the pillow yesterday so I felt okay posting :) And she loved it!

Quilt455 Well, I can always use more sisters! LOL. Are you asking about the gray text? That is Tim Holt fabric - it is so awesome.

Conniharns Thanks Conni!

HawkFan Thanks, Audrey. LOL re: the stash - I have to admit, I purchased most of those on my trip! I was on a mission!!

Quilterinmotion Thanks Marsha. The tickets are the 2wenty 3hree fabric that Paula used as her inspiration fabric - actually I believe the little fabric swatch she sent everyone was that fabric!!!

You make lining up all the points of the HST's seem effortlessly. Mine would have a zig zaggy effect which would make me want to toss it!

So glad it arrived safe & sound AND dry!

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 I always make my HSTs bigger and then trim them so they will be accurate. That and pressing seams open helps to keep them from distorting :)

Dtscrapper

I love my new pillow cover!

Caribousmom

Dtscrapper I'm so glad!
