Congratulations to the winner of October’s Pillow Talk

Montag, 31. Oktober 2011

Thank you so much for all your beautiful submissions to this month’s Pillow Talk. Your creativity is a pool of inspiration for us all!

Pillow Talk

Susanne from “Quilt it out” sent a a ninepatch in red and aqua with an intricate hand quilting.

And she even added a second one with a swan print

Aylins’ Pillow made from only solids made me curious how these blocks are done …

… and the backside of the pillow is as beautiful as the front, especially the straight quilted lines.

Look at Christine’s Pillow. Would you ever have guessed that these cute little quilted leaves are only her second free motion quilting project? I think they look perfect and should encourage everyone to give free motion quilting a try. To enhance the letters they are worked out using trapunto! Wow

And ladies, if you think this pillow with rounded shapes, a flower motive and a soft color scheme is made from Danielle or Dena or Diane – you failed. I’m proud to count DAN, a male!!! quilter, in my Pillow Talk! Head over to Dan’s blog “Piece and press” and you will be astonished what surprising things this man makes, who seems to think always a bit outside the box!

Kirsten from Gemini Stitches seems to share my love of lettered fabrics (Sweetwater has always some in their collections) and made a HST Pillow from Authentic complimenting her bed quilt (don’t miss the post with her great quilt).

Wow, and then another BEAUTIFUL lettered pillow which Kerry from verrberrykerry submitted (wish it would be mine). She has a great stash of Japanese fabrics and does all sorts of special projects with them. See more on her blog.

Last but not least Elaine brings the warmth of the last sunny October days into a room with her pillow Renaissance ribbons.
They are made from Fassett ribbons and she even sells kits on her etsy shop.

You know what – I’m too glad that I didn’t have to be a judge and can instead ask the linky fairy for some help to draw a winner.

And of all these pillows worth a prize she picked randomly Susannes Penpal Pillow (the very first picture). Congratulations Susanne! Enjoy your Sweetwater Christmas fabrics and please show me some pictures what you have made out of it!

For all who didn’t get this month’s fabric: There is a new round going on, and again a yummie and exclusive piece of fabric is waiting for a lucky winner! So keep the good work and send me some new submissions please…

Love the idea of this! I am always making throw pillow covers, so this is right up my alley!

Liebe Brigitte,
die Kissen sehen alle total schön aus, da hätte ich mich schwer für einen Favoriten entscheiden können.
GlG, Martina

Aylin hat gesagt…

Liebe Birgit, die Kissen sind ja echt alle schön. Wer hat denn eigentlich gewonnen? Kann man (ich) nicht so richtig rauslesen.
