-pillow talk swap 8-

Double Dresden Pillow

I finished my pillow!  I have to say that I really enjoyed making this.  I felt I had a vision for how this pillow was going to turn out, but sometimes my visions are flops.  I kept fretting over the background and whether I should put the dresden off center or not.  I am pleased with the overall effect though, and I have high hopes my partner will like this.

Back of Dresden Pillow

For the back of the pillow I used a coordinating print to the background of the front and made a simple envelope closure.

I kept the quilting on this pillow simple with random diagonal lines.  It already felt busy, and I didn't want to add more "busy-ness". ;0)  The pillow is 20" x 20".

Aren't you going to take a picture of me?!

Of course, as I was taking pictures, Josiah thought I wanted to take pictures of him.

How could I resist this face?!

Really, how I could I not?  Cutest little face ever.

  4. Beautiful pillow. I think putting the Dresden off center was a great idea. Love the fabrics you used. Yes, that is the cutest little face ever!

  5. Beautiful pillow! And very cute face ;)

  6. Great pillow!! I love your little tag on the back! Did you order those somewhere or make them?

  7. I really like your design! And the colors remind me of fall, my favorite season!

  8. I love your cushion! The background is perfect and I applaud you for having the courage to put your plate off center......I don't think it would have made such an impact if it had been centered. Great job!
