Pillow party

Remember the Verna quilt I made for my friend? She asked me to make her some matching pillows (yea! I get to play with more Verna!), and this is what I came up with.

Verna pillows
The green pillow (Hocus Crocus Budding Green) is 12 x 16. The square pillows (Budding Green Stripe and Spring Bouquet Dewdrop) are 18 x 18. Verna is getting a little hard to find. I bought it here.

VernaPiping
I added piping to the edges, because I'm crazy fancy like that. (Shh--I used this piping tutorial, and it was actually really easy. But it looks fancy, don't you think?)

Verna Back
For the back, I used a simple envelope closure.

See the quilted sham in the back? More on that soon.

LOVELY! really like the piping.

i bought some cording to make my own piping for a project, but I haven't gotten around to it yet, b/c of the piping, so thanks for the note on where to find a tutorial.

These look great, and the piping is stunning. That's a good thing to know how to do! So now I have some more projects for you. :)

The pillows are absolutely gorgeous, and the quilt, too! Did you get yourself a new walking foot yet? Just checking! Ha! It must be the mother/soon-to-be grandmother :-) in me!

So pretty! And you learned how to do piping just for me? I always knew you loved me best.

Robin said...
