Description

My sister, Donna, wanted pillows for her home and I decided to make her two for Christmas. One is 20" square, the other is 16" and they are made to coordinate with each other. The larger pillow uses the Photogenic pattern in Pillow Pop, while the smaller pillow is one I designed myself. I should know the names of these fabrics, but I don't remember them now and since I threw away the selvedges, I am at a loss. I can tell you that the blue dot fabric in the smaller pillow is Mochi Dot - a beautiful linen blend that is great for pillows as it has more of a home decor weight.

Both pillows are reversible with pieced backs and hidden zippers - so my sister can get four different looks out of the two pillows if she likes.

I wanted to create pillows that had a little bit of traditional flavor with a modern flare...and my sister had requested using some sage green in there too. She has a beautiful sun porch and I can just see these perched on her wicker furniture out there.

Update: November 24, 2014: I saw Donna in New England as I was back there for 2 weeks...and decided I wanted her to open these early :) She loved them!

HawkFan Thanks, Audrey. And LOL re: craving gardens. It was SO cold back east (and we had some snow) so I was happy to come back to my little corner of the world where it was 68 degrees and sunny yesterday!

Mymble Thanks, Margaret! It was good to see her smile when she opened them :)
