The Pillow Pop 2014 Sew Along wrapped up in December. This was such a fun group which produced a huge amount of gorgeous pillows. The administrators of the group (me, Valerie and Margaret) had so much fun that we decided to do another Sew Along in 2015. Scroll to the bottom of this post to learn more!
We’ll be keeping the Pillow Pop group open since it has such great reference material (although I expect things to be quiet over there)…so it is not too late to sew a few pillows.
We chose Snowflake (Challenging) and Fair Feathered Friends (Easy) as the pillows for December. Maybe Snowflake felt a bit too challenging in the midst of holiday celebrations because no one chose that one this month! But we did get some awesome pillows using the Fair Feathered Friends pattern.
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.
Fair Feathered Friends – This beginner friendly pattern uses fun prints to create a colorful, versatile pillow.
Gardencrafter made her nieces, Sophie and Sarah, each a pillow using this pattern:
Sarah’s pillow is hip and celebrates her love of volleyball with some cute fabric on the back.
Sophie’s love of batiks is celebrated in her version of the pillow.
Margaret used some beautiful Kate Spain fabric to create a festive, Christmas pillow with a red flannel backing.
So that wraps up Pillow Pop!
Want to join another Sew Along in 2015??!?
We’ll be sewing 12 projects from Little Quilts by Sarah Fielke and Amy Lobsiger. The projects are all mini quilts and range from easy to challenging. You’ll learn how to reverse applique, paper piece, sew wonky, hand quilt, and more. Most of the projects are “scrap friendly.”
Members are required to purchase the book as we won’t be supplying pattern information due to copyright law. But we will supply lots of motivation, conversation, general tips and inspiration. We’ll also be hosting a swap later in the year, as well as a challenge. I hope you’ll join us!
