Finished Pillow

I have recently been thinking about Father's Day and what I should make for my Dad.  Last Christmas I gave him this quilt called Body and Sole.

Body and Sole Quilt

It's made of Deb Strain's Spa with Kona Iron.  (There's a full post on it here)

So, I thought I would make my Dad a matching pillow!  I promptly turned to the book Pillow Pop for a pattern that would match and one that I could use the left over fabric from the quilt.  The Crimson Stones pillow was perfect!

Since I used jelly roll strips to make his quilt, that's all I had for this pillow.  Luckily, two prints from Lizzy House's Constellations line are a perfect match in color to the Spa line!  I used those prints for the center squares.  The solid is Kona Iron, to match the quilt.

The pillow came together pretty quickly and I'm very pleased with the result.  It's about 18" square.  I didn't have a pillow form the correct size, so I just used what I had and stuffed some batting in to make up the difference for these photos... I'll be flying to Dallas and giving it to him in person, so I'll buy a pillow form there!

This was my first time sewing partial seams, and it wasn't as hard as I was expecting!  It still came together easily and quite well.

I'm excited to give this pillow to my Dad! I hope he likes it as much as I do!

  2. Wow. What a combination. I love your colour and fabric choices and that quilting just pulls everything together.

  3. Love the colors and the patterns of both the quilt and the pillow. Very nice finishes. I keep thinking of taking the plunge and doing some pillows; you might have inspired me.
