A Pillow is Born

If you read my previous post, you will know I was on the look out for this fabric . . .

Karen was nice enough to e-mail All About My Kaleidoscope Quilt Shop to ask what fabric line this was.  She found out it was called "Quiltgate".  I know there were a couple of you that wanted to know what it was. I hope this helps you.

The reason I was looking for this fabric line was because I fell in love with this pillow and wanted to make one just like it.

Well, I decided to just look through my scraps and use what I had. So this morning, I proceeded to choose fabric and draw out the letters. This is what I came up with.

I was in such a hurry to get it all together that I forgot to add the extra embellishments, like the hearts and embroidery. And now I realize I forgot the lace also. So I may have to make another one later on and give this one to one of the kids.

But for now, it has a home on this bench that my dad made me years ago.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. That's wonderful. The simplicity of it is charming. It's just right for the bench. Well done!

  2. Pretty!!

  3. I like it!!! Certainly makes a statement.

  4. What an adorable pillow, Vivian.
