Description

Well I'm a little behind on my March pillow for the Pillow Pop Sew Along, but as I have decided to make at least one pillow a month all year long, I am determined to make the Life Aquatic before month end!

I am breaking out of the lavender pillow mode and creating an aqua (appropriate) Life Aquatic pillow to coordinate with my newly recovered window seat cushion.  After sorting through all my blue fabric, I realized that I didn't have ANY aqua fabric, oh darn, had to go buy some :)   So far I've cut and laid out my squares. Next step - sewing!

Pillow top done! It still needs to be quilted and finished, but I'm leaving town for a week...oh well!

Project Complete!
I used another beachy fabric from Birch/fabricworm for the back.

I made this pillow (and my Aqua Urban Seaweed) for my newly updated family room.  So happy :-)

I take it that's your seat cushion fabric behind the new fabrics? Lovely color, aqua :)
Sounds like you are having fun and will finish in plenty of time to have a March pillow.

Love it. It will look so good in the family room. I am going to have to get going to get my March pillow finished in time.

Sewhappy Skynme Capetowngirl Readerowl Thank you! Yes, the patterned fabric is the window seat cushion, and Sue, my new navy sofa will be arriving this week, so I've got to finish soon! Hopefully it will all be in place when you arrive!! :)

Looks great- love the little yellow border around the patchwork!

Mymble Thanks! It was looking very blue, so I though I'd add a little pop of color :)

Love both of the pillows, you did a great job! The urban seaweed pairs really nicely with the life aquatic pillow.

What a beautiful pair of pillows on your new couch! Great job getting them in done before the couch arrived. So much fun redecorating an entire room!

I am very pleased with the way both pillows turned out and how well they coordinate with my new sofa and window seat cushions! The yellow trim was just something that popped into my head while I was trying to decide what to do for a border....a little late, but hey, at least they are done :-)

(and my husband loves both the surf-fabric backs!)

This pillow really pops! The back is such fun too! Looks great with the other pillow shown with it! Perfect for your new sofa.
