Pillow Talk { Swap } 4 | Sent and Received!

Good news! I got word that my PTS4 partner received her pillow! BIG sigh of relief. I had such a hard time choosing a design for this round.

Ready for a pic of the finished pillow?

I knew Karrie loves Turtles, so I was going for a whole beach theme. I thought that the linen and hexagons looked like turtle shells on the beach.

Thought this photo of the back of the pillow top looked cool after quilting it ...

I used a charm pack of Neptune by Tula Pink for Moda and some linen for the background.

I also received MY pillow from Kelly! It is so beautiful. She used pieces of Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley. I also see some Momo Wonderland, Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow, Camille Roskelley Bliss, Heather Bailey Nicey Jane.

I love the button closure and French General fabric she used on the back. The quilting is gorgeous too.

The funniest coincidence though is that the pattern (Java Stars) she used for my pillow is from Karrie!!

The person I sent a pillow to designed the quilt my partner based the pillow she sent me off of. IS THAT COOL OR WHAT?!?!?

Thank you so much Kelly! Love, Love, Love it!

  7. I'm a lucky ducky!!! Woo Hoo!!

    Seriously, why were you so nervous? You're way more famous than me! ;)

    I think that is so awesome...It's almost like 6 degrees of Karrie! Ha!

    I told Kelly I need to make myself a pillow like she made....it really is great, if I do say so myself. :)

    Thanks again Ryan! You totally made my day yesterday. :)

  8. You really hit the mark for Karrie - she is over the moon! It's a wonderful, creative pillow and is SO Karrie! And so funny that your swap pillow is made by Karrie's pattern - it's a great design that I made up as a quilt the weekend it came out!

  15. Oh Ryan I just adore what you sent and received. The quilting on the one you sent is just magnificent as is the piecing. One day I hope to be half as good as you and then I'll be satisfied. I also really loved the one you received.
    Love
