New Mod House Pillows!

Here’s the TaDAH! moment from the pillows I showed you my process on yesterday.




I love them!!! Now that there pillows, I don’t think the houses look like they’re floating in space and I’m really glad that I didn’t spend the extra time quilting pebbles along the bottom – they would be totally lost! But a good lesson, because I think if I were to put houses like this on a quilt (which I’m thinking I will….) I will want to think about whether to ground them them with quilting or color or…????

Anyway, here’s the one I made for my awesome chartreuse chair:



I think it looks FABULOUS on the chair…but that’s just me! 😉

And the grey one was made for this rocking chair:



Not only does it look cute, but this chair really needs a pillow at the bottom there, so this one makes the chair truly useful!

I don’t know if this is just how my brain works…but decorating is an extension of my art. I place color and shapes around the room like I do when making  a quilt, or a village of mod house ornaments:


It’s just the process of decorating is soooooo much slower! 😉

  1. Candy, here is a pillow making tip to prevent the sticky up points in the corners. At each corner make 3 marks- 1″ in on a 45 angle from the corner and on each side 2.5″ away from the corner. Connect up these marks and that is now your seam line.
    Love your colour choices.
