Description

This is my take on the February pillow for the Pillow Pop group.  I used the collection "A Garden for Olivia" (except thin border it was from another quilt) from In the Beginning Fabrics and it will be for my office as the colors are perfect and I have a great chair in there that has long needed a pillow.  I see these pillows as ways to practice or work on my skills...from fabric selection to actual blocks.  I have not worked a whole lot with HST's until recently so really worked to make sure I was doing each step right.

Done 2-2-14 and it goes perfectly in my office!!

I think this turned out lovely! Cant wait to see the big finish.

Conniharns

This is beautiful. I love the richness of your fabrics. Really nice.

Terryt1955

I agree with Carol. How do you get so much done?! If Wendy is Turbo then you should be called NOS! Love the fabrics you chose and that blue looks like you used a different fabric for each HST. Reminds me of those stack & whack quilts that seem like you're using multiple prints when in actuality you aren't. I think you're getting a lot of use out of the Block-Loc ruler!

Joke

True and Caribousmom need to start sharing these quilting elves! I want one!!

I love the rich colours in the fabrics. The birdy fabric is really cute!

True

Joke Carolmarie Conniharns Skynme thank you! I have been waiting for a reason to use this fabric as just love it. And honestly no elves... Now I just have to finish it and all the others I have waiting!!

True

Terryt1955 LOL and I have been thanking you in my head a lot these past few weeks as that ruler has made both this pillow front and the quilt I am working in at same time so much easier to do! And the HST's are so exact one squares up with it. Thank you again for telling me about it:-)

Caribousmom

Mary, this is so beautiful! Love your interpretation of this pillow...can't wait to see it all done. (damn those elves - they told me they were going on vacation, but I see they've been helping you in Maine!!!)

True

Caribousmom thank you...damn now you know where the elves have gotten to... I hope to quilt it tomorrow but we shall see what the day brings!

ArloDeanQuilts

This turned out very nice.

cally68

Beautiful! And could you tell those elves to make a stop over in NY on the way back to Wendy's house?

True

ArloDeanQuilts thank you... cally68 LOL I will pass on your message and thank you.

HawkFan

Such beautiful fabrics. This looks so elegant!

True

HawkFan thank you so much...all done but the binding!

Quilterinmotion

Just beautiful; what a great intrepretation, True ! Love all the color in that pillow.

Terryt1955

You would think those damn elves would have stopped at my house first since I'm only 4 hours from Caribousmom . But oh no, they had to go clear across the country to you house. I think they might be a tad mischievous don't you? Perhaps they're related to those elves-on-a shelf group....

Joke

This came out so great, True ! Love those colours and your border and binding choices and those cute little birdies on the back!!

True

Quilterinmotion thank you it should go very well in my office as the colors are exactly what is there...tomorrow we shall see:-)

True

Terryt1955 LOL elves must like longer trips or maybe they needed to cool off;-) And I think they are the smarter cousin of that other elf!

True

Joke thank you...the colors in the pictures of the finished pillow are not great as it was dark out here but I do love this fabric and especially those little birds!

sew_what

The colors look lovely in that chair.

Mymble

Absolutely gorgeous True - love the colors and the back is great- really wonderful fabric choices and you did such a great job with the hst's. Now I'll skip the elves ( I hear they need copious amounts of food and drink) if I can have some EQT 's ( emergency quilt technicians ) to get caught up!

Capetowngirl

Stunning. I love your rich colour choices

True

Mymble LOL and thank you!

True

Capetowngirl thanks so much I love having it my office to look at...

True

Carolmarie thank you...I am so happy with it!

Quilt455

Love this one. Such pretty fabrics you used. Is it's new home at your office?

True

Quilt455 thank you and yes it it now loves at work and I love looking at it!

Sewhappy

This is so lovely, I love the rich colours and batiks. Very inspiring and it has given me some ideas, as I have yet to start my Chevron pillow.

True

Sewhappy thanks so much... And just an FYI none of those are batiks (although I love batiks) just the way they look in picture I guess. Enjoy making yours and cannot wait to see it.

forkandneedle

True

forkandneedle thank you and I am so glad to offer inspiration!!
