The next room in line for some personalization is the family room. It is a large, comfy room with a soft sectional, gas fireplace, pool table, piano and space to hang out. I love this comfortable beige, neutral color room, perfect for adding pops of color and changing as the mood fits. Right now I am into blues and blue/greens. Navy blue, light blue, aqua, teal all make me happy.
The five pillows together:
To make the pillows a little sturdier (again, this is a high traffic spot) I went to Joann fabric to find home dec fabric for the backing.
I liked this fabric so much I decided to make a pillow out of it.
I dug into my quilt magazine collection for inspiration. This pattern is by Maureen Cracknell and was published in Love Patchwork and Quilting Issue 8.
Not sure I love all the quilting on this but I do love all the fabric!
Not sure what provoked me to be so compulsive, but I did match the fabric on the back zipper fold.
This feather quilt is a pattern by Jo Avery in Love Patchwork and Quilting Issue 9.
So much fun to make and again the zipper fold match. I guess I thought these pillows would work on either side if I did this.
This pillow was the recipient of a lot of IG love! Just a bunch of HST's lined up to create the chevron effect.
Simple quilting seemed right here.
Lastly, I love this fabric so much I could not cut it up.
Just made a pillow, lightly quilted around some of the flowers and added piping. This may be my favorite of the bunch.
After all these pillows, it's time to make a quilt!! After I deal with the naked walls in the room I will share pictures of the entire space.
Happy Friday! Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday party!
