Decorator Pillows and Pillowcases - Country Links
Remember that quilt I’m making for the Farm Bureau? I called it Country Links..
Well, I thought it would be extra nice if I would go ahead and make up some pillowcases and pillows to go with it.
So I made 2 decorator pillows and 2 pillowcases.
Not everyone loves decorator pillows in their bedroom, so I went simple. I just used the same basic shape as in the quilt, only a bit bigger. I left the back with a whole piece of fabric that I used in the quilt top.
The pillowcases were fun! I really like how they turned out.
I’ll add these to the quilt to make a complete Set. I still need to add a label to the quilt, so that’s on my bucket list of things to accomplish in the next few days. Then I can show it to you!
I know that the pillows aren’t very stuffed here - but we’ll get some 18” forms before we give them away. Right now they just have a little something in them.
I opted to go pretty simple with the decorator pillows. I know that not everyone even likes or wants decorator pillows on their bed! They do have a tendency to get in the way. But I figure pretty much everyone can use pillowcases!
I’ll work on that label soon. I want the Quilted Twins to get a lot of advertising out of this, so I want a nice one!
I’m also going to see about getting my sis to make up some fun pillowcase kits soon - for children - I know that many people make pillowcases for children in hospitals and special needs kids out of fun fabrics. I think we have plenty we could use that way.
Anyway, these are adorable - and yes, I am pleased. The quilt combined with these goodies will be a great door prize, I think.
Just to refresh your memory- this is the top that these will go with.
And this is one of the things that I’ve been doing!
Be sure to check out what my sis has for you in the store!
