Description

This is going to be the second pillow I make...for my living room.  I am using leftover fabric from my Field Notes quilt and used the design tool to work it out.  Hope to get started this weekend.

Update 10-5-13 Pillow is done and ready for use!

Carolmarie well if our internet decides to stop acting up I will eventually get the picture of the design loaded...

HawkFan

I just thought you were teasing us smile by intentionally not posting a picture right away!

Terryt1955

HawkFan Ha, ha. I thought the same thing! Is it storming in Maine Mary?

True

Terryt1955 HawkFan honest I am not but for some reason our internet and cable were messed up last night (it was a gorgeous, clear night?) and now the site won't let me upload it. Guess it is not meant to be seen;-) Hope that is not a sign. Will try something else... sure is frustrating!!

Mymble

Love your design ...should be wonderful made up!

True

Mymble thank you! Now I just want time to give it a go:-)

HawkFan

Yay - you got it to load the picture - ever figure out what the problem was?

True

HawkFan No I finally did it from work so no clue if it will work from home?!

Terryt1955

Ohhh, Love the design! It's a play on the "plus" quilts I see all over the place but with more detail. Love it!!!

True

Terryt1955 Oh it is...I got it from our border and block book and then added in more colors/fabrics then it showed.

True

Terryt1955 and thank you!

Terryt1955

Wow, I just looked it up in the book and would have never thought that it could turn out so nice! Adding that yellow strip makes such a huge difference and of course using beautiful fabric!

True

Carolmarie thank you...I will have to look it up tonight and tell you...as book is at home:-)

True

Terryt1955 one more time it is all in choosing fabrics eh? I love how the design tool let's you play with them as I changed it several times. Hope it looks like this done and cannot wait for more current fabric to be available to stash as it is truly so helpful and fun. I don't know I would have ever made this block without the design tool showing me what it could look like!

True

Carolmarie The book I got it from calls it the "Merry" block...but not sure if it is called something else.

Stamdl

Beautiful True!

HawkFan

Love the pillow! It's so nice to see the real thing. You put together such a great fabric combination

True

HawkFan Stamdl thank you both...I just love this fabric and love these pillows. I ended up giving first one away to a friend but this one stays here!

Oh no, you have caught the pillow bug from Wendy. It is all over now. This is really pretty. I love yellow in anything project and noticed that people are using it more and more. Gray and yellow are my favorite combination right now that is.

Readerowl

Beautiful - Love it even more!

True

Quilt455 LOL and thank you...and yes these are very, very addicting!

True

Readerowl Thank you!

The "real" thing is just as lovely! That dark burgundy looks really good against the brown chair.Will you be making more of these you you can fill your couch or will you keep them for the chairs? How's the quilt going in the Field Notes?

True

Terryt1955 Thank you! I love that deep burgundy fabric it will be binding on quilt. The quilt top is done and I have backing just need to do it. I have told myself when simply color quilt is a top I will finish othe one. I want to make a bunch of pillows for my living room with this being first one. I may even make new cover for the ones in there that need them but a little worried they get too much beating on from "others" who love here;-)

Terrysim

What a nice combination of fabrics, and I love what you chose for the back, too. I'm going to have to get some of this Field Notes line... love the birds!

True

Terrysim Thank you so much...I just love this fabric.
