for the girls

I had made these for the girls a few weeks ago, and they love them.  The i-spy fabric patches were the remaining pieces left from the pack I started using on this pillow
I tried out free motion quilting again and am really liking it, seems to make quilting a little more interesting, just another option.  I can’t wait to wash these up for the first time and see how they crinkle.
And for the very simple reason of being able to tell who’s pillow is who’s, I hand embroidered their names on a little patch on the back of each pillow.  It’s funny, but they absolutely love that part!  I see more embroidery in my future, it’s just so nice to be able to curl up on the couch and work on a little project.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I’m off to start cleaning and making a batch of Apple Pie Squares!  Yum!

    Super cute! I love the added touch of their names on the back… I can see how it would make the pillows more special to the girls.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

    Your girls are really cute! My girls get excited about their initials or names on their stuff, too. I think my oldest loves being able to clarify which is her property.

    Very cute. I saw a couple of fabrics from my own closet in there! I am working on an I Spy twin sized quilt for my son right now for his bday in January…so fun to use such a variety of fabrics, and though it is in the very early stages, he loves coming to look through the fabrics I have laid out!

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

    Those are so fun – I can totally see why your girls love them! I’ve been pretty fond of embroidery too lately – just seems like the perfect thing for the fall/winter. I have no idea what I’m doing really, but it’s still SO fun!!

    Happy Thanksgiving Anna!

    Love these, Anna. I can see why the girls love them. The red fabric with the white polka dots was a perfect choice for the border. Love the embroidered names idea… my embroidery never turns out that well:)

    Very cute idea! I like the ‘homie’ feeling patchwork seems to add to any room.

  26. Vicky 11.26.2010 at 8:10 am #

    gorgeous cushions. I’m in love with the little wizard of oz squares.

  27. Emily Elizabeth 11.27.2010 at 12:36 am #

    I love myself a rectangular pillow. That Wizard of Oz print is a favorite.

    Super cute pillows, and I love the embroidery! I really need to learn how to do that.

    I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving! (Oh, and Lauren loves looking at the pictures of your girls. So cute!) :-)
