February OMG complete!

My One Monthly Goal over at Red Letter Quilts for February was to sew two floor pillows for my sister and brother-in-law. 

They moved into a new house last fall, and bought a new couch (and throw pillows!) for the family room. When we visited for Thanksgiving, I noticed that they had some old oversized pillows they had brought into the room for extra seating/back rests (10 of us descended on their house for the holiday weekend...we were taking up lots of space!).  I decided to make new matching covers for the pillows as a belated house warming gift.

The leaf pillow you see below was what she already had. Obviously, when I stumbled across this gray, green, and yellow stripe, it was an easy decision to buy it! 

She was happy (and surprised!) to receive the new covers, and we both love how they look in her family room! 


  1. What a great gift. And I love the fabric you choose!

  2. Love a good pillow cushion, perfect fabric choice for their family room - Chris :D

  3. Very classy, and a Perfect housewarming gift!

  4. They are getting so much use already - thanks again, I love them!!!!
