housewarming pillows

To make your house warmed, you need pleasantly plump pillows, don’t you think?

I’ve always loved this quilt block, just an arrangement of HSTs. (I actually couldn’t find a name for this block—anyone know?) It’s funny how different it looks in a pillow, though, once the pillow is stuffed—more round, less sharp. I quite like the effect. The pillows are fraternal twins in more than one way: I split each HST up so that there is one in each pillow, justĀ arranged differently (except for that center orange! oops!), and I used the same fabric in different colorways to back them.

I love the assortment of colors—on the pillows and on my friend’sĀ couch. Many of those fabrics are beloved, as I’ve used them in many projects over time. They’re stuffed and seamed shut (rather than pocket pillowcases), using stuffing from small Ikea pillows that were about the same size. They’re modest, at just about 12″ square. My friend says that a friend of hers was hugging a pillow while they talked over some rough times, and she said the pillow had good energy. I couldn’t ask for a better compliment.

    Aww- I love them! I agree, they do seem to have a good energy. :) Your pillows always make me want to create pillows myself. It’s on the to-do list, for sure!
