This little project is now complete.
I made a pillow. I liked it so much that I made a second pillow.
Because the sun can’t seem to find its way out from behind the clouds, I added sunshine of my own. I bound the pillows in a solid orange that reminds me of Sunny Delight.
I’m glad I did it. It frames the houndstooth with a punch of bright color and is the perfect finish.
After piecing the fronts, I lined them with a piece of white cotton duck cloth and “quilted” them very lightly. I then added solid white backs of the same cotton duck, with zippers in them.
I’m super pleased with how they turned out. They’re bold, bright and fun to look at. The scale of the houndstooth print was an experiment that worked out perfectly.
Tedious as the pattern is to piece, I love these pillows so much that I’m considering a quilt in different colors.
Until then, the pillows make me smile, and that’s a good thing on cloudy days!
Hoping your day is sunny,
they turned out amazing. What room is that? You have changed things around – I need to come see!
SUPER cute and they look fabulous on the love seat.
WOW! I am totally amazed that you made those! You should totally sell them! BIG TIME KNUCKLE BUMP! I will be featuring these today at DotDotDot! Thanks so much for linking up to Try it Tuesday!
Oh my, these look SO GOOD on your couch. Wow, I’ve never seen this pattern before. Cool!
Love your houndstooth pillows. Looks like a great pattern to paper piece. Is this a pattern you created yourself? Found you through the pillow-party.
Hi!! Your pillows are so cute!! I was wondering if you would share what fabric you used for the turquoise? I want to reupholster my couch and that is the perfect color. Thank you so much!!
Hi, what size did you cut your strips? I was thinking about doing mine at 2.25″ but think it might be too big. Thanks!
I finally went and measured the strips on my pillows! They are 1.5″ and finish at 1″. The squares were cut 3.25″ and finish at 2.75″. I hope that helps!
