Finish Friday - Gravity Pillows

It's been seven months since I began the Gravity quilt journey.  Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts hosted the QAL, and you may recall my finished Gravity posted last month.

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.


I carried the quilting from Gravity over to the pillows.


Backing fabric is Flight Patterns by Tamara Kate for Michael Miller Fabrics.



Thanks to Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts for hosting this QAL.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  9. The pillows are lovely and that backing fabric is perfect! I like side zippers on my pillow covers. They are almost invisible!
