A Pair of Scrumptious Pillows

Summertime is almost here – so what better than a pair of crisp pillows using the Scrumptious collection by Bonnie and Camille? I had two mini charm packs to play with and thought it would be fun to make two pillows which coordinated with each other.

DontBeSquarePillow.Front0001

The first pillow is the Don’t Be Square from the Pillow Pop book (this is one of the pillows the Threadbias Pillow Pop group is making in May). This pillow uses tiny 2.5″ squares and lots of negative space and it seemed perfect for some intricate quilting…so I decided to practice my quilting skills using my walking foot and this tutorial.

I’m happy with how it came out, although there was definitely some distortion in the process. This pillow finishes at 20″ square.

The second pillow uses a pattern by Sherri McConnell and is part of her Simply Small Projects for this year. I really had fun making this one – it comes together quickly and I love the star pattern. The pattern is for a 16″ pillow, but I added on a turquoise border to make it 18″ square.

I quilted it by doing some very simply echo quilting.

ScrumptiousPillows.Backs0001

I decided to match the backs for these pillows and used up some leftover mini charms to piece a strip across the top of each one. The big pieces of turquoise fabric is something I bought on sale a long time ago: Flora by Lauren and Jessie Jung for Moda (it is a perfect match with the turquoise in Scrumptious!).

Both pillows have hidden zippers.

I couldn’t resist putting them on my bed with some of my other Bonnie and Camille creations!!!

    They’re gorgeous – the colors remind me of sherbet.
