A quilt doesn't seem complete to me without some pillows to partner with it. I was going to make some pillows for the 'feeling blue' quilt, but then I found these in my pillow closet. Yup, I have a whole closet where I hang pillow covers that aren't being used. It's great having an abundance of pillow covers so that I can change a room when the mood hits me and I don't have to paint!I made these from some vintage blocks that I salvaged. They have a nice modern/vintage look. (Nanette's characterization of the feeling of the quilt.) I think she was right on and I think they fit. I made them a long time ago and they've never found a home.
They'll live there until I make some different ones to partner with this quilt.
Thanks so much for all the fabulous suggestions for my quilty experimentation. I'm making a list. I'll let you know which one I'm going to start with. There's no way I could choose just one!
nice pillows and great idea using vintage blocks. I will need to remember this.
the pillows are F A B U L O U S!!
Love the vintage vibe! Great Pillows!
what a great idea~ i love your vintage blocks! i just think they are telling lots stories... thanks for sharing
Vintage-modern. Perfect combo.
Oooh those are soooo pretty. I feel inspired to make some of those vintage blocks myself - and how cute to put them on pillows.
Beautiful! I have that red fabric-it's so pretty I hate to cut it!
What a great way to use vintage blocks! Now I need to go look for some.... I love an excuse to shop!! ;-)
They look perfect!
Quilt Partners! 8^) Absolutely necessary and you have two great examples.
Wow those are very nice pillows. Great job.
LOVE the pillows. The old mixed with the new is just perfect!
I agree with you, sometimes a matching pillow really completes a quilt. These pillows are just gorgeous. Love the blocks!
The pillows and quilt look fabulous together!
(Love the idea of having a stash of pillow covers!)
What charming pillows - they look great right there!
I love that brown pillow...which is saying something cuz brown doesn't normally live on my color wheel.
Something old is new again. They are fabulous! I'm excited to see what becomes of your quilty experiment. Love how your mind works.
Pillows, a great idea! Stop by my website this week for a vintage block giveaway. It would make a great pillow!
Oh wow. I love them. Especially since I hate making pillows!
your KJR pillows look awesome with your feeling blue quilt Jacquie!
