More Stripes ~ Two Patchwork Pillows

I bet you're over the whole stripes thing happening here.  Well I promise, this is the last of it ... for a while anyway.





The details:
  • Two patchwork pillow covers each measuring 20 inches x 20 inches.
  • Suitable for use with 22 inch square pillow inserts which will nicely fill and plump up these pillow covers.
  • Patchwork tops have been quilted.  Quilt sandwich includes a layer of 100% cotton batting as well as backing fabric.
  • Zippered pillow backing for easy insert removal and washing.
  • Home Decorator weight fabric is used for the pillow cover backings.  The backing fabric is from the Isso Ecco & Heart 2 collection by Lecien.

You'll find these patchwork pillow covers for sale in my Etsy Store. You can find the listing here:  TWO PATCHWORK PILLOWS.



With apologies for picture overload,
Rita

ps.  All stripe fabrics have been bundled together and stored out of reach.  Until next time.

  4. I love both pillows and how your quilting adds to the effect on each. Love the centre-facing log cabin one. The other one makes me want to make a basket weave effect pillow with two different stripes only.

  5. The stripey fronts are gorgeous but I absolutely LOVE the spotty backs. Especially love the way the spots meet at the flappy bit!!!!!!

  6. Those pillows are so beautiful. It just makes me think of a house on one of those islands in New York where all the rich people go. Ha! Ha!
    Seriously...they are perfection!

  7. Hi Rita

    I love these pillows. The backs are an unusual choice, I wish there were a better photo that shows the front and back of each pillow together so that I can see how it works.

    See ya

  13. I heartily agree with all of the above. I adore stripes when used with log cabins/sashing/borders, so I think I'm going to have to make myself some cushions like yours.

    And don't stop taking photos -- I found your blog through your Flickr profile!!

  17. A fun series! I really like the pillow with the white centers and striped "logs". The way you have positioned the stripes makes a nice pattern.

  23. Rita, do you know where you got the fabric in the center of the first photo? It's the white base with thin stripes in color pairs. It is EXACTLY what I've been looking for!

  24. I love the stripes you've been doing. It's inspired me to work with some striped fabric I've had around for awhile Thank You!

  25. DOn't apologize for your stripes...I actually ordered some of my own :). Love the pillow covers!

  26. Another fun post of eye-candy for us quilters. You are such an inspiration for making the simple become complex and interesting (like the positioning of the stripe in the nine-patch). Okay, someday I'll clone that, as I'm tucking it away in my idea file. Thanks!

  27. Keep the stripes coming they are so refreshing and different than most of the quilts & other objects being made!

  28. I love those pillows! I also am VERY fond of the ubiquitous striped objects. I grew up on the beach and it reminds me perfectly of a warm summer day at the beach.
