Pillow Palooza Continues

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!


  1. Awesome pillows! I love the colors and patterns, and that echo quilting is perfect!

  2. Loving you pillows, great colors. How the heck did you match that zipper fold!! LOL. TFS.

  3. Love those pillows! They are all different but look wonderful together. I also like the quilting on them. Great idea to add pops of color and go with a neutral room.

  4. Love all your pillows!!! The color palette is so soothing... what a lovely addition to your home:-)

  5. I love how the fabrics tie these all together but the designs are different. Great job!
