Pillow Progress

It's time for round 7 of the Pillow Talk Swap, and since I will be moving next month, I wanted to get a jump start and not procrastinate on this one. I was inspired by this quilt by Red Pepper Quilts. It is just so colorful and modern, I couldn't resist. :)

Fabric Selection, Pillow Talk Swap 7

I pulled these fabrics mostly from my stash, with the exception of the two black and white prints in the bottom right . I had to buy those two special - apparently I rarely sew with black.

I shrank the original block design down to 5" blocks, and my final pillow will be 3 x 3 blocks, with 1" sashing in between.

Blocks, Pillow Talk Swap 7

With the first four blocks done, the feel of the pillow is finally starting to come through. Hopefully my partner likes where I am heading!

 PS. Finishing these blocks was my goal for the One Thing, One Week Challenge over at Amy's Creative Side, but I didn't manage to finish them all since I got sick on Thursday. But I am still pleased with my progress, even if it wasn't as much as I hoped.


  1. They are beautiful! Great color combinations!

  2. Love you color combos!

  3. I love your blocks! The colour combo is perfect.

  4. I keep coming back to these, I just love them :)

  5. Love your blocks. I am also in the PTS7 and chose this same pattern. I just saw yours today. So funny. I shrunk the blocks down to a 5 inch finished size also. It ended up being so many tiny pieces! But I think it turned out cute. You can see a little bit of mine here:
