One of my favorite groups on Flickr is the Pillow Talk Swap. It is a fun swap. Each person is assigned a blind partner, and you make a special pillow for them. It is fun, scheming and sewing for your partner. The surprise is the best part. I haven't done this swap in quite awhile, but when I saw a new round was coming up, I couldn't resist.
My partner was easy to sew for. She had some pretty specific color requests, but didn't seem to have any preferences for the actual pattern. I decided to go ahead and make a kaleidoscope pillow, just like my KJR one from earlier on in the year, only a bit larger. The above picture was my sneak peak to the group, and below is the finished product!
I made a 20" pillow out of blue, green, and yellow fabrics paired with Kona Ash (or maybe it was Moda Bella medium gray).
There is a white invisible zipper in the bottom, and the backing is a print from DS Quilts. I really like that line alot, it has a lot of great blenders and basics.
I had a lot of fun sewing this pillow. I enjoyed the little break from sewing work and deadlines.
I hope my partner loves it! It went in the mail Friday morning, and I can't wait until it arrives at its new home. Now I want to make some kaleidoscope pillows for my couch. I just love this pattern (remember this quilt?).
Hope you had a nice weekend!
