Pillows, Pillows, Pillows!!

So when I saw that Sew Mama Sew was having a GREAT pillow challenge this month...I just couldn't help myself.  

I was looking through some of my designs in EQ and came across one, that when my daughter saw it, she said, "You HAVE to make that for me!!".  Today was the perfect day to make this pillow since we had a snow day and the office actually closed!! 

I call this pillow Adamant Argyle because after I gave it to my daughter (which she really really loved) I asked her to help me with a name. She said, "Ummmmmmm."...LOL. So, I decided on Adamant Argyle because she was so adamant on me making it for her! 

What do you think? 

argyle pillow
I used Kona Crush in black and Kona Cottons in Hibiscus, Thistle, Ash, and Medium Gray.
 
It's so much simpler than it looks...it's almost all 4 patches with sashing! Easy Peasy! 

Not that I have an addiction to pillows or anything, but I may or may not have another one to show you on Friday. ;)


Much Love!!!

  12. I want to make all of those pillows! But my children ruin pillows and the dog would sleep on them and my husband doesn't like a bed piled with pillows. Oh well, maybe I will still make a pillow. Thanks for showing the pictures.
