Pillow fight, anyone?

22 Jan

My quilt is all cut! I won’t get to piecing it until next week though. The birthday party is this weekend so I’m going back home.

In the mean time I wanted to take a few notes on the throw pillows I made a few months back. They’re Hourglass pillows based on a free pattern by Amy Butler. I did tweak it a bit to fit the inner pillow forms I had at hand plus I skipped the button in the middle for comfort reasons. Okey, I was too lazy to find those buttons you can cover with fabric.

The fabrics are from the Nigella collection by Amy Butler. Only the front is pieced as I wanted to leave one side plain just in case they’d look too busy. I don’t think they do but now I get to switch them around anyway.

I did the neat zipper closure based on a tutorial. Erin at house on hill road has several great tutorials online.
