We currently have 48 members in the Pillow Pop group and would love to have you join us. If you’re not already a member at Threadbias, why not join – it is free, and it is a great community of sewists.
So each month Valerie and I will be do a round up of the pillows for that month.
We chose The Metro (easy) and Gumdrop (challenging) as the pillows for January…and here are the wonderful finishes with links back to each sewist’s project page. I hope you will click through to see the entire projects as the backs and quilting on each pillow are also wonderful.
The Metro: This pillow celebrates bold modern fabrics against a neutral background.

Margaret’s pillow used warm colors and artistic prints
Karen chose to celebrate owls in her fabulous interpretation of this pillow
I made one too – and went with golds and black for a modern feel.
The Gumdrop: A fun, bright pillow which uses curved piecing
Margaret chose a smaller version of the pattern with a Christmas theme.
Valerie’s pillow came alive with purples and grays; while Jo celebrated her inner child with some fabric from Bungle Jungle
Marsha took us to the far East with an Asian flare
While not everyone completed a pillow for the month, several members of the group managed to piece their tops. Please visit the group page to see all the gorgeous pillows and tops!
February brings two new pillows – a pretty X’s and O’s pillow to celebrate Valentines Day, and a modern chevron style pillow which uses low volume fabrics. Hope you’ll join us!
