I am finally going to tell you about how I made all those new pillows for my couch!! First, I used Angela's amazing tutorial to make all of the pillows with an envelope back. Her tutorial for a basic pillow is great and easy to follow. I also used her idea of making a pillow out of patchwork squares for one of my original pillows. I used charm squares (5") for this pillow.
Next up is the chevron pillow. I used the concept of value to make this pattern. I first started thinking about value when I began reading Katie's blog at Sew Katie Did. Check out this link for a great lesson on seeing value.
The pattern for this next quilt is from Fresh Lemon's Solstice Star Series. This particular block is called the Ribbon Star. I really like the way I quilted this one!
This next pillow is made using the pattern for the Oh Fransson! Sparkle Punch Quilt Along. I have most of my squares cut to make a large quilt in this patter, but making a pillow took so much less time!
I really can't remember where I got the inspiration for this last pillow. This is a classic block that I have seen in multiple places since I first started following quilt blogs and checking out quilts on Pinterest. I really like the way I quilted this with straight lines.
Fabric for all of these pillows comes from Ruby by Bonnie and Camille. I am absolutely obsessed with this fabric line and can't wait to finish the two quilts I have started in this fabric. :) The negative space on all five pillows is, my favorite, Kona White. All five pillows have an envelope back and I used fabrics I had purchased in the clearance section of Fabric Shack to make the backs. I purchased all pillow forms on sale at Joann. for the first two I purchased the high end products, but I do not like the feel of those as much as I do the middle-of-the-road pillow forms I purchased the second time around.
