recent batch of echo pillows - shabby chic

Didn't realize I had SO MUCH fabric from when I worked for interior designers. I've combined remnants of that with other pieces that I've thrifted and they came out better then I anticipated. I am now working on more shabby chic style pillow covers. Check out my shop for more
Check back often.......I'm on a roll.

and more - blue - pillows

I love these colors together.

My sister is gonna want this set.
I've been using some vintage thrifted fabrics,
remanents left from my days of sewing
for interior designers
and some treasures I've been hording.
Plus my stash of vintage and thrifted zippers.
I have lot's more coming......
shabby chic
This has been a great break from quilting,
less stress on the shoulders and it's
a great way to deplete some of my stash,
by sharing with others.

more pillows......blues

Pillow set numbers 12, 13 and 14

The flour sack pillow is mine.

For those of you that sew
understand that sometimes you buy fabric
or an item that you would like to repurpose
such as flour sacks, drapes, etc.
BUT, have a hard time cutting it.
Then when you do and your project turns out great,
you want to keep it.
That's what I am doing with the flour sack pillow.
The rest of the pillows are in my shop- -

another set of 3 pillows

These were listed in my shop this week.

I really like how 3 reversible pillows
using coordinating fabrics
offer a variety of looks.
These 3 pillows above were turned over
and viola........

.... you get this look above.

Fabrics used were 2 different vintage curtain panels,
imported French upholstery,
remanents, newly purchased piece from
a local quilt store and
recycled pieces from my stash.
here's a link to one of the listed pillows.
Be sure to check out the others.
I've started working on several blue, denim, ticking sets. They are looking good.Hope to have them in the shop this weekend.
