{ working on it }

laying them out...

ironing them on...
stitching them down...


  1. How absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing your progress and the tutorial link! I have a huge box of pillow forms in my garage, left over from my pre-child days of selling quilted things at craft shows. I will be making at least 2 of these lovely pillows, one for me & one for a friend who could use a pick-me-up. Best, Ani

  2. Great job Cindy! I've never done machine applique before... everything by hand! At least it gives me time to sit with my feet up!
    Have a great day! Kimberly

  3. Thanks Ani and Kimberly! Ani, I still need to find some pillow forms the right size for these pillows. When I decided to make the pillows I didn't read through the entire pattern to see that they are 20" x 20"!

    Kimberly, I actually contemplated doing hand applique on this after seeing how cute it looked on the circles you're working on, but then decided to go with what I know how to do. One day I will do hand applique. I love the look of it and I do enjoy embroidery.

  4. How pretty! Makes me wish for Spring.

  5. I LUV your *threads blog*. You & I have some colors/layouts in common, even though we're miles apart. This quilt's awesome. I'm a stippling-addict & proud of it. It's one of the most enjoyable past times for me. Keep up the nice work & maybe some day, when I learn how to down size my pictures..I'll share w/you.
