Along with my patriotic pillows and the succulent and cactus pillows, I also recently created these smaller sized patchwork Ohio pillows. I made a few large sized Ohio pillows for my last pop-up shop and everyone loved them. Requests came in for some of the smaller size so I made a few.
Recently, I found the softest, coolest old quilt at a garage sale. This quilt had already become a cutter as someone had cut parts from it to create something. So I used a bit more of it to cut out the shape of Ohio. I just LOVE this one – I may have to keep it!
I rarely keep one of my own pillows. They all just end up at the shop or in the load to go to a show!
I think this one almost looks like the fabric was made with this mashup of prints instead of put together by hand!
Patchwork is seriously so much fun to do! It’s a bit time consuming, but it’s fun. Piecing fabrics together that might not have been meant to be together and creating something unique makes me smile.
A big reason I love these is the fact that all the fabric would have otherwise ended up in the trash! Instead of sending it to the landfill, it became cute, fun pillows!
Looking at this one makes me think of the ocean! I’m so ready to go back to the ocean. If I put this one in my living room and look at it every day maybe it will make an ocean vacation happen more quickly 😀
This one is a favorite too. I love the coral and neutral colors.
Most of the patchwork pillows are in the local shop here in town. A couple I kept, including the quilt Ohio, because I liked them too much to part with them just yet 🙂
My next event is The Summer Market in Avon Lake Ohio. I’ll have patchwork Ohio pillows with me there!
