Pillow Pop Round-Up: June


BlogButtonThe Pillow Pop group is a really fun sew along over on Threadbias. We’re making pillows from the fabulous book Pillow Pop all year long.

To learn more about the group, visit this post.

We’d 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.

We chose Photogenic (easy) and Sunburst (challenging) as the pillows for June…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 fabulous.

Photogenic: A pillow which showcases a special fabric or embroidered design – the corner triangles evoke the feel of a photograph.

Photogenic.Karen

A palette of navy and peach softens this lovely pillow by Karen.

Photgenic.Marsha

Marsha made a pair of coordinating pillows that are bold and beautiful.

Photogenic.Wendy

I chose some vintage Heather Bailey fabric with large scale prints to make a summery pillow.

Photogenic.Cathie

Cathie’s pillow highlights some amazing Aboriginal fabric that will really brighten up a room.

Sunburst: The traditional Dresden Plate design of this pillow can become contemporary or old-fashioned depending on the fabrics chosen.

Sunburst.Mary

Mary’s pillow has loads of “pop” with black and white fabrics and a punch of turquoise.

Sunburst.Margaret

Margaret used darker hues to create her “moonburst” pillow.

SunBurst.Karen

Karen put an entirely different spin on her pillow by using Dresden Fans to make her pillow shine.

Sunburst.Carol

Carol’s Sunburst Pillow includes a sweet embroidered message.

Sunburst.SewHappy

Sue’s pillow has a vintage feel with a scrappy selection of 1930’s reproduction prints.

I hope you’ll think about joining us for July!
