{no patchwork} quilted pillows


Can you tell I was on a pillow making spree? Yes, three new pillows in two days. And I only stopped because our house simply cannot fit any more pillows :)


They were so easy and quick to make. I loved digging through my stash and choosing which fabrics to use. I really like how very different all three of these main fabrics are.


This is our Lola pillow, my favorite. Love all these adorable happy kitties.


And here's Lola posing next to "her" pillow. She's the sweetest cat ever and totally needs a pillow of her own. Especially the one with cat pictures all over :)


More kitties on the back. You can find my tutorial for this kind of hidden zipper closure here.


I used the same method to install zippers for the other two pillows. It works so well every time.




Each pillow finished at 18" x 18" and I stuffed them with 20" forms to make them all wonderfully plump and squishy.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful day. Svetlana

  1. They look lovely, especially the apples & pears one, because it looks so healthy it would counter-act the lounging on the sofa eating cake!

  3. I've just found your blog through Flickr. You have just inspired me to make more of an effort with sewing things like pillows (I usually make clothes). I love that no-quilting quilting technique. You have a new follower - each pillow is stunning!

  4. Thanks so much for the idea to put a large form into a smaller case to make it plump, you answered one of the those weird mysteries I could never figure out!

  11. What a gorgeous puddy tat and you're absolutely right all of them should have their own cushions, though my three think that anything that is mine is theirs.
    Lovely fabrics on all of them.
