Judy made up an elegant version in French red and taupe using Rouenneries Deux fabrics. Judy did a fabulous job considering her limited experience with a rotary cutter.
As it happened, there were two Jackies in the class. Jackie #1 tested out her brand spanking new Bernina by whipping up her pillow in Aster Manor by 3 Sisters. She found perfectly matching buttons and discovered the magic of the #10 Bernina edgestitch foot!
Jackie #2 chose the always fresh combination of blue and cream for her version. Again, her choice of buttons was lovely!
Wendy survived my first workshop and bravely returned for my second :) The fabrics for her pillow were chosen to match her recently upholstered bedhead - a sublime combination of soft blues in Bunny Hill's Oooh La La range.Deidre planned her pillow specifically as a gift for a friend's golden wedding anniversary. It was a beautifully subtle combination of cream fabrics with gold accents. A very thoughtful gift which I'm sure will be happily received.
Thank you girls for a great day of stitching and chatting. It was a much needed break from the worry of nursing a sick child. If you'd like to make up your own version of this pillow, you can find the free tutorial over at Moda Bakeshop.
