Pillow Talk


If you have been following my blog you have seen these fabric paintings before. I had no idea where I was heading when I painted them, nor what I would do with them.

I made perfect pillows for the loveseat with them.


I used Pellon Fusible Fleece as the batting and quilted them along the grid lines. Since the fabric was very firm because of the painting they were very easy to quilt.

I used some Marimekko fabric I had for the backs and put zippers in them.

I simply inserted a pillow form in each one and zipped them shut.

It’s great how something as simple as changing the pillows can give a room a fresh look.

As I was ready to take the picture of these my camera battery died so I used my phone for the pictures.

The colors are really lighter and softer than what you see in the picture.

I'm new to your blog, so I didn't get to see the paintings. Hard to believe that it's paint. Love them as pillows.

I just love your pillows. Looks like something I would do, including doing it first and then deciding what to make with it. Have a Happy New Year, and keep on quilting.
