Pillow Pop Round-Up: August

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’s free, and it is a great community of sewists.

We chose Jewel of the Sea (easy) and  Candy Coated Diamonds (challenging) as the pillows for August…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.

Jewel of the Sea – Narrow, foundation pieced strips give this pillow depth and interest.

Erica made two versions of the pillow – one in summery colors, while the other celebrates winter.


Karen’s pillow shines with Tula Pink’s Acacia collection.


Turquoise and pink make Cathie’s pillow pop.


My pillow celebrates red and orange with some accents of charcoal dots.

Candy Coated Diamonds – Paper pieced diamonds provide precision in this eye catching modern pillow.


Valerie didn’t quite complete her pillow, but since she was the only person this month who attempted it, I decided to go ahead and showcase her beautiful top that uses strong, saturated color to make a statement.

    Hats off to all the ladies that persevered with these tiny strips. They all look great!
