Pillow #1 are HST's (Half Square Triangles). I made it so I could get more comfortable with doing them. I'm still not crazy about HSTs but I'm even more not crazy about the free motion quilting I used here. I really hate how it looks and that's because it's my first time with it. I need more practice....
Pillow #2 was inspired by Denyse Schmidt's Hop, Skip & Jump pattern. I've been wanting to make a quilt out of that pattern so I thought this would be a great test drive. I love this pattern alot! The pebble quilting was cool too, but some parts are an absolute abomination. Again, I need more practice.....
Pillow #3 is my favorite! It's a Spiderweb Block - My Way. Tutorial is coming so you guys can make one too. Aren't they fun?!?! I wanted to echo the web, so I thought hand quilting it would really make it pop! I think it did the trick. :)
So here they are all happy together!
These are definitely a great addition to my couch! :)
Overall, I think pillows are great because they are so quick to put together. It's a great way to test out a quilt pattern that you might be on the fence about.
Now, go forth and make some pillows!
Tutorial! Yay! I can't wait! Your pillows are just fabulous! :)ReplyDelete
