kaleidoscope pillow

This last week I was able to finish my kaleidoscope pillow and get it sent off.  It already has made its way to its new home and was well received.  There is nothing better than getting a wonderful thank you and someone saying they've always wanted a pillow from me {blush, blush}!  Made my week and all the work well worth it!! 


I love this fun pattern!!  I'm now ready to make one for me since I love it so much!!  One of the best things about swaps is getting inspiration from others and creating something you normally may not have.    I love having to think outside the box and giving myself a bit of a challenge!


I used Lori Holts text print for the border and Leciens Old New 30's strawberries, cherries w/ polka dots for the binding.


The finished size is approx. 20 X 20.  I actually purposely make my pillows about a 1/2 to an inch smaller than the form as I like my pillows a little fuller. This one is about a 1/2 inch smaller than 20 inches.



I hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday and has a wonderful week-end!! 

Hugs,

  4. Beautiful pillow. I have a pillow thing going on at the moment, and in the last few weeks I have made quite a few, I am currently making myself a AMH feather pillow, I needed to practice the block for a bee.

  8. Lovely cushion (I'm British!). I really like the way that sometimes you see stars, sometimes squares. It makes it more interesting.

  16. This is a delightful combination of prints and colure, just gorgeous. Your quilting has highlighted the pillow's design too.
