Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Star Seams Pillow

The other day I shared photos of a paper pieced star I made using the Star Seams tutorial at Six White Horses (see this post for links):

and I figured that I would one day make a pillow.  Well 'one day' arrived a lot sooner than I thought!

On the weekend I had a bit of time and decided to play around with some fabric and this is what I came up with:

This is the first time I've made a pillow and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!  I just realised I forgot to take a photo of the back but its just plain in the aqua fabric with an overlapped opening, so you're not missing anything exciting there!  I quilted around all the narrow dark blue lines and I was tempted to quilt the white area but I really love the crispness of the plain white so I decided to leave it be.

I think I'll be making some more pillows soon, its such nice quick project to do.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. It's beautiful, and will look stunning on the couch!
    I hope you're having nice cool weather, here it looks as if summer soon will be here. The leaves on the trees are slowly getting there, usually it's all green this time of the year.
    Hugz, Carin

  2. Your pillow is gorgeous! Well done!


  3. Dropped by from CIGAWW - that's a great cushion :)

  4. Its really beautiful, with the white background fabric the star really pops, nice!

  5. Great pillow, Sue! Isn't it nice to have a finished piece! Whoop whoop!!

  6. Lovely fabrics in a lovely pillow. Well done.

  7. Love the design and the colours. Very inspiring...will have to think about making my own. Okay, thought about it. Will admire yous instead.
