Nuts About ? Blog Hop and Giveaway

 

 

 

I have always loved a good blog hop and this is a great one so far! Nuts About ? was thought up by Marian of Seams To Be Sew! She is such a sweet hostess. Thank you Marian for all your hard work. I spent a great deal of time thinking about what I am nuts about! My family (yes, but not for a hop), I truly love pincushions, but I really do have a thing for pillows!

I am Nuts for - Pillows

Don't you just love Charlie Harper! I do! Sometimes a print is just to perfect to cut up. Do a little straight line quilting and make pretty pillows for your couch. The lighting in my house was bad today, so out on the lawn for photos.

Here are a few I have made over the last 8 months! Great way to practice invisible zippers!

Making couch cushions kind of brightens up a room! Holidays is just one reason to make a pillow or two!

Even the neck pillow got recovered! Love the blue roses by Cotton + Steel! It is removeable.

These were all made using Lori Holt patterns from her book, Farm Girl Vintage (I am nuts over that book too)! I made the one below as a gift when my daughter was ill! It really cheered up her room!

Please go stop in and visit the other blogger's for today!

  18. I love all the pillows, and really, I could see myself going nutty over pillows also, it's a great way to use up those small blocks that are sometimes to small for wallhangings, but to large for hotpads.. I should make more pillows. :)

    I love that you covered your own neck pillow, that's pretty cool and I love the idea, I always take one with me when I travel, and it would be nice to be able to just take the cover off to wash it, so that's a really great idea.

    I'm sew happy you shared your nuttiness with us today. Huggs
