Love the fabrics you used. I think you made the right choice in minimalizing on this one. I also felt that the original design was too scrappy and the bloom was lost. This looks gorgeous, you did yet another amazing pillow. Love it!!!!
Skynme Thanks, Erica. I felt really overwhelmed before I started this one...and I knew I just had to change things a bit for my own design sensibilities. Glad you liked what I did!
Ok I hated this pillow...could not imagine anyone wanting to make one. And then I saw yours and my whole view changed! This is gorgeous and wonderful and please send it to me;-). I may have to rethink what pillow I should make to go with niece's quilt now I have seen yours. Lovely.
True LOL! Thank you, Mary. I have to admit, I was dreading this one and didn't love the one in the book...so I challenged myself to put my own spin on it so I could love it :) I actually enjoyed making it...which totally surprised me! Glad you like it too!
You are truly talented to be able to take a pattern you dislike and visualize it done differently and pull it off so well. Amazing!
I did not like this pillow in the book but I love yours!!! Great fabric and great job outlining the circles. I totally love, love the back!!!!!!
This is gorgeous - well done. Love the colours and fabric choices
Love your version of this pillow and the colors are beautiful.
LOL, it seems everyone thought this was ugly in the book. And it is! But you did a wonderful job of simplifying it so that the blooms really bloomed. There was no way I was going to make this BEFORE I saw yours. And with all this lovely yellow and gray you had better definitely hide it from Quilt455 !!!
HawkFan Thanks, Audrey
Quilt455 I had a feeling you'd like this one, Cathie, with all that yellow and gray :)
Capetowngirl Thanks so much!
ArloDeanQuilts Thanks, Belinda!
Carolmarie LOL. Thanks, Carol. I hope that I have motivated some others to make their version of the pillow.
Terryt1955 I hope the author doesn't read this thread! LOL. Are you going to try this one, Terry?
Caribousmom you have definitely motivated me to make another pillow. Love the order the simplifying gave the pattern.
Drnic2c thanks so much! I knew I had to simplify it...otherwise it was just not going to work for me...and I am so happy that my tweaking of things worked out so well!
Well the author should invite you to make pillows the next time. That is if she isn't threatened by you!
Wendy,you are a genius to recreate this pillow!Love the colors you chose and the two grey circles with the leaf print look perfect! Awesome job!
