Myra added one more linkup: the Gravity pillow. Since I put so much work into making Gravity, I decided I needed matching pillows.
I tried a new tutorial for a hidden zippered back: S.O.T.A.K. Handmade. It's a great tutorial, and I think I'll be doing this from now on, instead of an envelope back. Thanks to Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts for pointing me in the right direction.
Backing fabric is Flight Patterns by Tamara Kate for Michael Miller Fabrics.
Thanks to Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts for hosting this QAL.

The pillows look fantastic, Anja. The fabric for the back is really fun, and how wonderful to have found a tutorial for a pillow closure that works well for you.ReplyDelete
Perfect backing! I'll have to try that tutorial as the one Julie made me is done that way and it does make for a nicer back, really. I always overlap my fabrics a LOT, but still.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pillows. I love hidden closures on the back, gives a professional finishReplyDelete
Love the pillows! I love that the quilting on them will match the quilt as well. I will have to check out the tutorial you used.ReplyDelete
Wow, wow, wow! I LOVE those pillows, Anja! Great job with the quilting too!ReplyDelete

The pillows are lovely and that backing fabric is perfect! I like side zippers on my pillow covers. They are almost invisible!ReplyDelete
They're beautiful! That's the second reference I've seen today to that pillow tutorial...I guess I'll have to give it a try on my next pillow :)ReplyDelete
You have made a great job of those - love the colours and the matching backing!ReplyDelete
Yay for matching pillows! Love the backing too. If ever I make a pillow, I shall try the hidden zipper back technique as well.ReplyDelete
Your pillow is beautiful! I just love a good rainbow. The quilting is great and I love the backing fabric.ReplyDelete
Wow, Anja, these are great. I love the quilting, and I may even have to try the zippered pillows!ReplyDelete
