Description

Seeing others complete pillow in the months preceding January led me to purchase the Pillow Pop book (e-book) and decide to join the Pillow Pop Sew Along.  

Gumdrop was the first pillow I did as part of the Pillow Pop Sew Along.  It was not the first time I had done curves of this type so it seemed relatively simple to me.  I reduced the size of the templates to create a 14 1/2" pillow cover.

The fabrics I used for this pillow are oriental prints by Moda that were gifted to me by a dear friend.   I had made an Origami Crane wall-hanging for my daughter for Christmas and decided to continue on with the oriental theme with my first pillow.

I enjoyed the process and used  the envelope style pillow back technique in the book.

1/15/14  My daughter just texted me a photo of the new pillows in their home, her brown leather sofa.  I like it!

I've been watching iterations of this pattern. I am amazed at how different it looks in Asian themed fabrics! A perfect blend.

YOur pillows are a perfect example to how the fabric totally changes the pillow. Love it!

I keep coming back to this gumdrop. I love the fabrics in it, and the variations in the background fabrics. It makes a beautiful pillow.

Really great- love the fabrics, and the binding color is perfect- dittos to everyone- different fabrics make a totally different look for this pillow!

Thank you all. I agree, the fabrics give each pillow a different flavor and there are so many flavors. All the pillows I have seen here on TB have been so lovely, and each so individual.

I love that Koi fabric its just gorgeous!

Quilterinmotion

Skynme , I agree. It has metallic gold throughout it. Unfortunately, it was the smallest amount of fabric of all of them! Oh, well, there was enough for this project anyway. Thanks.

True
