Virtual Trunk Show #8: Pillows!

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well!  I am a light-weight when it comes to homemade gifts!  I very rarely make quilts as gifts because of my time constraint even though I have a couple in the works for a few very special people in my life.  I oftentimes resort to pillows when I give homemade gifts.  So, in case you are running late in your 2012 Christmas gifts-to-make lists, perhaps these pillows would give you some ideas…?

Feel free to click on the names of pillows to view more pictures.

I hope you have enjoyed my pillow trunk show.  Now curious mind wants to know which your favorite is!

  1. I love the heirloom pillow, Truly you have done a wonderful job on all of the pillows. Your work always offers a terrific inspiration to “Get Sewing”.

  2. I LOVE all of them–Heirloom Pillow would be my favorite but I also like the cross stitch Christmas Tree Ornaments. Wonderful work and lots of time spent on pillows. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Cardinal is favorite. Embroiders are nice but I don’t do machine embroidery thus I don’t do. I love to hand embroider. I also like Peaceful Garden–I think that was the name. You did a great job.

  4. What beautiful pillows! Any one of them would be a very welcome gift! My favorite is the heirloom pillow – oh my!!! Such gorgeous stitching!!! And of course I love the cardinal pillow – I’ve bought that issue so I can make my own :*) Thanks so much for the trunk show!

  5. The first (Heirloom) is so classically “you”… it! Pieceful Garden and Log Cabin Leaves and the monogram pillows are ever so appealing BUT the sweet little blue/white snowman really captured my heart!!!! Sigh! Blessings, D

  6. Love them all!!! and I treasure the one you left with Dan and I here at Rogers Sewing Center when you left us (: (boo hoo) It continues to awe and inspire others. Love you, friend!
