Marca-Relli Pillows

I finished the pillows I made for my dear sister-in-law:

I really like them a lot!  They are quilting cottons in the blocks, bordered with a homespun-cotton that has the appearance of a linen/burlap crossbreed. I quilted with one simple echo line approximately 1/4 of an inch inside each color region.

And just so you get the whole picture, here are my inspiration pictures: artwork by Marca-Relli:

I originally intended to do invisible zippers with these guys, but I am just too pregnant stupid right now to even follow this incredibly clear tutorial. So I just went with what I knew and cranked out an envelope enclosure out of doubled-over black fabric.

Do you have a favorite?  I think I like the “V” one the best.  In fact, it’s my submission to this month’s Blogger’s Pillow Party! Maybe even one of my two entries to the Sew Mama Sew contest!

  1. love these cushions, lucky sister. I especially love how you made them from artwork inspiration. My fave is the cross x
