There are so many uses for pillows in our homes. Here are just a few of them. I like to use pillows to add interest to a plain chair. This is one I made, hand appliqued and quilted.
Sometimes two pillows look even better,so I added this little yard sale needlepoint one. It's not very comfortable to sit in this chair with two pillows, so you have to remove them when you sit there!
I use pillows for comfort. There are two on my chaise. The top one I made and the other I've had for years.
I like to use them to add color to a room. These red ones add color to my white couch and get changed to yellow in the spring.
Of course we need pillows on our beds. One or two are definitely not enough. Red pillows on a guest bed.
Quilted pillow on another guest bed, didn't make these.
The needlepoint one was given to me by a friend.
What prompted this party in the first place was Manuela's post on pillows . Don't you just love all the inspiration you get reading blogs? I was making some new pillows for our bed, so I thought it would be fun to show them to you and see what pillows you have in your homes. Here is what I made. If you are interested maybe I could do a little tutorial on how to make them.
They are so nice and cozy on the bed. Notice the ones with the teapot fabric have dotted fabric on the back. I didn't have enough fabric but I think it looks better that way!
Detail of the patchwork one, with a yo yo in the center. I made this one quite a while ago and probably showed it to you before.
I just love how the pillows look against the backdrop of my quilt. Some of the pillows are down and they are so soft and cushy. Is that a word?
Here are some brownies I made. I promised you refreshments! I'll go and get the tea and be back in a minute.
Now I can't wait to visit all of you and see your pillows! Thanks for coming.
