New House, New House Pillow

For our California house I made this little house pillow that matched our living room just right and that we both loved.


The thing about moving, though, is that we generally change our minds about what colors we want in the house and so some of our old things don't fit so well anymore. It was tough to say goodbye to that house pillow, so I figured the only thing to do would be to make another to take its place.

It was an exciting chance to use some of my fancy new quilt rulers.


I also used my Farm Girl Vintage quilt book to make some of my favorite little hearts inside of churn dashes.


I decided to add little stems so these corner pieces could be connected later.


Connected with vines, that is!


Here's the pieced top all basted and ready for quilting.

I did some diagonal line quilting that reminds me of the rainy days here in Portland.

Here's its new home!



Best house pillow ever.
