So it was going to be a quilt.
I had finally gotten together all my low volume prints, cut the strips, and started work using this fabulous tutorial from my friend Maureen for my first quilt-as-you-go project.
But then I started thinking about how amazing those quilted panels would look on my family room couch. The best thing about low volume pillows is that they match everything -- and always look effortlessly cheerful and fresh while doing it.
And then I thought that I could pair them with a great floral print by Cloud9 Fabrics that I'd been saving, just perfect for the backing.
And then I realized that the panels I had quilted would be enough to make three whole pillows...maybe even four.
So I went with Plan B.
Sometimes, it's just the right thing to do...

Low volume is the best, isn't it!? The pillow is gorgeous Heidi!ReplyDelete
So true how low volume always looks effortlessly fresh!! I love the little Happy Day Yay in the middle. I think plan B was the way to go!!!!ReplyDelete
Always better to sew something you really want to, than plug away at a project because it was your original plan :-) Can't wait to see all the pillows together!ReplyDelete
