Playful Pillow

An Island Batik Adventure

Such a fun adventure – “Playful Pillow.”  It wasn’t much of a decision for me as I knew I wanted another pillow for my sofa to go with the one I made last year with our curves adventure. I got the idea from potholders made by  Patchwork Pottery.

The pillow top was easy and it was the first project I attacked at my Spring retreat.  As soon as I got home I embroidered the face, backed the pillow front and quilted it.  I kept it simple because I wanted the kitty’s face to be the focus of the pillow.

It finishes at a generous 20 inches and I love the way it looks side by side with my other Island Batik pillow.

The fabrics were provided by Island Batik and the threads by Aurofil.
