FAL Catch up

Hello friends! It's been a busy few weeks and I, for one, am so glad the holidays are over! Every year I vow to keep things simple and end up busier and busier.

A few nights ago, I finished up my game room/family room cushions. These are in the basement and I've used so much white, I almost don't want to go down and look at what the kids have/will do to them.

I used 26" feather pillow forms from Ikea for both.
The first pillow was made using Kelby Sews - Love Letters pattern. I just love how the colors tie in with the pictures on the wall. I also learned to extend a zipper as I didn't have one long enough.

The 2nd pillow was made from a block I made at Peaks this year. I had originally sashed this block in white and wasn't sure what it would become. The pattern is Karen's Autumn Leaves.

 I decided to change the sashing to the same Kona coal used in the leaves and then finish it in white.

The backing for both cushions is a canvas print from Ikea called Tidny. 

 This brings my Q4 finishes to a whopping 3 lol.



  1. I love your cushions. The autum leaves cushion is my favourite. I love that block with the black sashing. I wil try it myself. Thanks for sharing.

  2. So cute! Love the "LOVE" pillow. And don't worry about the kids - that's why you have zippers. Unzip, pretreat, wash, dry, re-zip!

  3. Very nice - really like how the LOVE turned out. I have 2 dogs and have given up minding my cushions better to just enjoy wash and make more!

  4. Love that Love pillow! I've been wanting to make one of those forever!

  5. Both of these cushions are really sweet. I love how you added the Kona Coal to frame those leaves. What a great call!

  6. I loved your LOVE pillow so much, when I found the free pattern, I had to make one right away so have it in process and hope to blog about it tomorrow! You have great style and color choices!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! Sure beats talkin' to myself! :-)
