Heather Bailey Pillows

I hope that you aren't getting sick of me talking about this fabric - because it won't be the last time. 

I have been busy procrastinating working on other projects instead of my daughter's quilt, but today I put together some pillow cases for a few pillows that will adorn the back of her day bed


These are large euro size pillows (26"x26" squares) and were very satisfying to make - they deliver such a burst of color into her room (now you know why I painted the top half of the room white - imagine how busy it would be against a bold color)! She loves to read on this spot, and I hope that this makes it an even more cozy retreat


To stretch my fabric, I used 100% cotton aqua colored sheets on the back of the case. I am not sure when I will finally complete my quilt top, but
I plan to follow your advice and will stick with higher quality fabric for the quilt itself. I want it to stand the test of time. If I ever finish it, that is.

Oh these are so cute! I just bought me a sewing machine and I want to learn how to so also. I am going to get it out of the box this weekend and try something out. Not sure what but something. Now I have seen a lot talking about Heather Bailey fabric so I guess I need to check that out. I have only gotten stuff at Walmart so I need to get to a fabric store and start getting some more material. Thanks for sharing.

Pillows make the best difference, fairly simple to make and don't cost a fortune. I love the impact of pillows and yours are really great.
