Text It! – Project 3 – Pillow Talk

We are flying through the projects and today we put the spotlight on Pillow Talk. If you follow me I’m sure you’ve seen this pillow since it made the cover!

Text It! quilts and pillows with something to say

I love to mix quilting cottons with wool as you’ll see in some of the upcoming projects, and Pillow Talk is no different.

When it was time to do the quilting I planned to quilt around the wool applique (not an appealing thought for me) but in the end I gave myself permission to do some straight line quilting right over the wool and it works! Boom, done!

My friend Pam shot these fun photos, which are a little mid century modern and I love them, probably because they remind me of the time when there was one house phone, and we shared, and call waiting was a big deal! It’s nice to go back to that slower pace once in a while…

We all need to make some time for a little pillow talk :)

We have some talented quilters and authors today, and they each have a giveaway!!

Dorie Hruska – Forever Quilting

Dorie and I met at Spring Market a couple years ago and I’ve been following her ever since. She’s always busy teaching her long arm quilting workshops, and she’s the author of Making Connections (read my post for her book tour here) Today she has a Pillow Talk project to share over at forever-quilting.com – and you’ll see her name again because she quilted my Freedom Quilt! (coming soon)

Kate Colleran – Seams Like a Dream

Kate is another author! I bet you’ve heard of Smash your Pre-cut Stash (it’s rather catchy) well, you can find it in her shop along with some other fun patterns and quiltalongs. She even offers a list of lectures and workshops that your guild might be interested in so take a minute and peek at her list and read about her pillow project at seamslikeadream.com

    Hi, it’s me — Kay — from Smyrna, GA… these pillows are enough to make me a pillow-person. I’ve never given pillows much thought, too much work for such a small object. But you might be changing my mind.
