HST pillow

The couch at my house is a rather sad-looking thing. I made a pillow last year to brighten it up a little, I meant to make more - but that didn't happen.
Miss V started complaining about us only having the one pillow - and could I please make another one? So I found a Kona charm pack and some scraps and made this
I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
I used some of my FMF for the back
 - sorry about the blurry picture - 

I put it on the couch and I do like it....
Maybe I should make one more? And preferably before 2012 ;)

The pillow is beautiful-both the colors and the quilting! You should definitely make more--you are great at it!

Oh, the colors are just wonderful. At least one more pillow would be good. I know we are moving into summer, but those colors will light up the room when long, dark and cold winters come back.

It makes me want to make a pillow too!

Sew pretty! The problem with couch pillows is that people use them in ways we never intended. And then when the whole lap tray thing ended badly, the pillow is the one to suffer.

Flot!
Sjovt at finde en dansker blandt de mange (fleste amerikanske) blogs jeg læser. Er vild med de farver og stoffer du bruger.
På gensyn!
Mvh,

The brighter the better! I love it. :-) I think I need to get busy and make something for my plain brown sofa.

What a colourful pillow and a great addition to your sofa. The quilting design really sets it off.

Lovely!
I would suggest four more - one for each of you. Christmas is a good aim if you like it in 2011 :)And I do now how odd this sounds :)
