All my pillows are done!

I finished all the pillows for my couch. The 2 bigger pillows are more for decoration the smaller ones are simple since those are the ones that we use all the time.

Finished all the pillows


I recently asked my Mom to paint me a picture for this room since she is an amazing painter and I love to have real art in my house. I photoshopped in the photograph that I sent her to show her what I wanted her to paint. I can't wait to get it.

I wanted to re-use the pillow forms from the previous pillows that were on the couch since pillow forms can get expensive and I do like to recycle. So I had to make the pillows the sizes on my forms. This quilted pillow measures 24" x 24", I LOVE that it looks awesome on the couch. I loved adding a touch of red to this pillow since the painting that I am waiting from my Mom has red in it and my kitchen has a lot of red so it helps to tie it all in.

Stripe Pillow


This is the other large pillow at 20"x 20" that I also quilted. It is seriously so nice to finally have some home dec pillows on my couch especially ones that I have made myself.

Log Cabin Pillow


Trying to decide where to put each pillow on my huge sectional.

I am really anxious to find out what pillow I will be getting from the Pillow Talk Swap. It will help me to fill up the other spaces on my sectional. I am secretly hoping it is this pillow.

Here is the pillow that I made for my secret partner for the Pillow Talk Swap. It measures 18" x 18".

Owl Pillow - pillow talk swap


I can't say much since I don't want to giveaway who my partner is since he or she has not yet recieved it. I will say there is a tiny hint on the back of the pillow in the form of some buttons.

I actually said "omg" outloud when I saw the owl pillow! Fantastic! I also love the large pillow with the quilted squares in the middle. The middle makes it.
