Pillow Mania

I made a few pillows at the end of 2013 beginning of 2014. For me they are like mini quilts for the couch. The last in the great series of pillows is one I made for my father-in-law. He and I have a squirrel-thing. We have exchanged some ridiculous squirrel related items in the past. The new Charlie Harper fabric prints by Birch, seemed like just the opportunity to make another fun squirrel project.

Front- I went with minimal quilting on this pillow

"More Squirrel Shenanigans"
18 x 18" (shown with a 20" pillow form)
Birch Fabrics, Charlie Harper prints from Fancy Tiger Crafts, Denver
Aurifil 100% cotton thread for the piecing and quilting
Fusible Pellon fleece for the "batting"
Red zipper from zipit

I used my hex-n-more ruler to cut the triangles, and for the fun Seminole patchwork I had pieces left over from the Always Bee Learning Flickr Group from a few years back. The solid fabrics are Kona, Chinese red, Curry and Charcoal along with my favorite stand-by Snow. I fussy cut the front and used a big piece of the Birch fabric in the back. The red zipper is just another fun punch of color.

  1. I love it! I have a bunch of that fabric just waiting for a project as I am a huge Charlie Harper fan.


If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
