New Couch Pillows

I have been itching to make these pillows for a month now. I bought the fabric when we went up to Anacortes after Thanksgiving. I finally was able to make them. The pillow forms I bought were from IKEA for $6.99 each and are 20" x 20". I used Sew Katie Did's awesome tutorial forinstalling an invisible zipper too, awesome!
The pillows have batting and backing on both the front and the back to make them hold up better, and hopefully last longer. We shall see...
The fabric on the front is from a line called Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry, it is so beautiful.
I tried some straight stitching on it using my walking foot and aqua thread. I am in love :) The quilting took some time, but the effort was worth it.

I've come across your blog and love the pillows you made. Your Shores of Hawk Run Hollow is just stunning. I did Village of Hawk Run Hollow and am currently working on Christmas of Hawk Run Hollow. Your quilting is quite pretty too.

Heather, these pillows are gorgeous! I love the fabric combination you used and the texture looks so nice!!! Hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve with your family. It's been fun following your sewing and stitching this year - you are very talented! Looking forward to seeing your creations in 2011! Meredith

Fabulous job Heather! I'm going to have to check out those pillow forms. IKEA is going to be getting a lot of money from me this year...and I think that I can manage a few pillow forms too :)
