'Birdies' - pillow

One of my finishes for the 2015 Finish Along (first quarter): I can't think of a better name for it...I love the fat little stylised birdies on the front of the pillow, so am going with 'Birdies' as a name.


Made from two separate fat quarter sandwiches that I used to practice some free-motion quilting on for a couple of other projects, I inserted a zip and a 16" pillow insert.

loops and daisies

  1. Deeeeeee-lightful! Isn't it great to practise especially when it turns out this well?

    1. I enjoyed doing something so quick (helped by the fact the two panels had been quilted last year!) Thanks for dropping by!

    1. Thanks Vera! I'm not sure what I'll do with it, but in the meantime it looks fine on the spare bed!

  5. What a pretty pillow and a great way to use something that you'd already made while in the process of working on another project. I've been thinking I need some new pillow covers. And I've been meaning to do some practicing of some fmqing patterns before I attempt it on the quilts I'm working on. I think I'll combine the two! Thanks for the idea, Jen.

    1. Thanks Sue! Watch this space...I've just practiced some fmq spiderwebs on some leftover Spiderman fabrics for my nephew's quilt, so another pillow will be on the way!
