Patriotic Pillows

In my last post I wrote about making a
Patriotic table runner or table topper
for my mom and siblings each year for the past
8 years.

This year's table topper is a flag I made
altering this pattern just a bit.

After making the table topper flags,
I decided to make some pillows for 2 friends and myself.
I liked the pillows made at Cluck Cluck Sew
and pretty much followed her idea.

The pillows are quilted, bound and stuffed.

There's something about red, white and blue that just makes me smile.


I needed the light blue border to make the pillows fit a standard size form.
It brings a little more light into the pillow, too.

I love this swirly fabric I used for the back.
There is a hidden zipper so the form can be removed
and it can be used as a topper instead of a pillow.


The 2019 Patriotic items are done!

Happy Quilting!

Your pillows are fabulous, Ramona! Love the different fabrics for each stripe and the blue fabric border is perfect. It showcase the 'flag' wonderfully.
