Pillows made using Curvalicious, was on my To Do list. I have made pillows before and I am always unhappy. I end up with those empty bunny ears in each of the corners and this time I wanted a nice fit. I also did not want to use the lapped back closure that I usually use. It is easy to do, but I wanted my pillows to be more professional. So I headed to the Internet. The best place to find the How To's? YouTube. It's the perfect resource for me, because I am definitely a visual learner.
This is the neutral fabric pillow. The light colored background is pieced.
I used a 20"x20" pillow form.
I quilted it the way that I traditionally quilt my Curvalicious designs. There are swirls in the circles and parallel lines in the light fabric.
The second pillow has a modern aesthetic to it.
The background is one solid piece of orange polka dot fabric.
I quilted the grey curved strip with swirls in the turquoise circles, but to accentuate the more modern flavor, I zig-zagged down through the light curves.
Using the tips I picked up on YouTube, I am very happy with how the pillows turned out. The inserts fit the quilted pillow cover nice and snuggly. I will share the amalgamation of the methods that I used in my next blog post.
