I finally finished my Pickledish pillow, which thanks to Aneela's clear tutorial came together smoothly with minimal stress. Actually, I went about the pillow a little backwards: I knew that I wanted to use the Cosmo Cricket "Early Bird" for the backing, so I chose the fabrics for the front to coordinate with it. I hand quilted the background with #8 perle cotton in ecru. The back is a simple envelope closure, and the cherry binding is also from Cosmo Cricket's "Early Bird" collection.
I couldn't resist including Pipi, one of my favorite Japanese pigs!
I think it's fun that there are two different toaster fabrics : the "Early Bird" toasters and the Robert Kaufman "Metro Cafe" toasters.
A little peeping monkey...
The backing which inspired the front.
I love the Michael Miller "Jiggle" jelly fabric.
I am entering my pillow in this month's Blogger's Pillow Party over at Stitched in Color. Go check out all the great ideas!
