One final pillow

Here is my last pillow for our living room. I am seriously addicted to making pillows now. They are quick and fun. It's so nice to have a project that I can finish is just a day or two rather than weeks.

I have seen this design on several different blogs and wanted to try it out. The cover ended up being a bit big for my pillow form so I plan to make a new form for it. I like my throw pillows nice and full.

For a change I did random straight-line quilting on this one.

My new living room. I do plan to redo all my flower pictures when I get another chance to make it over to the flower shop. This will do for now. It makes me happy how bright it is. Nikki from my quilt group suggested to choose three words that describe how you want your house to look and choose items around these three works. For now I'm focusing on bright, colorful and relatively kid-friendly. I can't pretend that I am able to have any kind of a sophisticated home with three kids tearing it apart, so why try?

My old pillows. I'm liking my new ones so much more.
