Pillow Swap

I am participating in a Pillow Swap througha group on  Flickr.  I am not even sure how I stumbled upon this group, but so happy I did.  After seeing all the creativity from the previous swaps, I knew I had to kick it up.  I looked through my quilt magazines, pictures online and finally found this Moda Bake Shop Tutorial.  Here is the front of my pillow.





As I was sewing, thoughts kept entering my head - what about the back.  So I answered my thoughts, make the back very pretty and my partner can change up the way the pillow looks.

So here is the back:



The pillow has to be mailed by December 15th, so I am way ahead of the game and will probably mail mine tomorrow. 

Do you have a favorite side?  My girls like the side with the flower.  I like both of the sides and I need to make myself some of these pillows, it was very enjoyable being so creative.

  1. I also like both sides. The flower side is very cute, but the quilter in me likes the other side as well. Love the colors.
    Your recipient will surely love it.
