In the Blue

Today I'm sharing a project I finished nearly two months ago - I've been enjoying it selfishly so it is time to share the love...

It is the 'Garden District' pillow/cushion from 'Pillow Pop' by Heather Bostic.  This pattern is by Casey Yoder ('Little Miss Shabby') and it is a stunner of a design.

I used a variety of blues for the curves and a linen blend as the background.  The design is cleverly pieced and almost appears like a double wedding ring block.  I'm so impressed with it that I think I might make a DWR in similar colours for our bed.  The squares were quilted in the ditch and then hand quilted using variegated perle cotton in curves.

The back using a strip of 'Madrona Road' and the same linen.  The edges have been bound.  I had never done this for a cushion before but it was exactly like binding a quilt.

This is my third project from 'Pillow Pop' and I have plans to work through the book with the sew-along on 'ThreadBias'.  Two of my other projects are here and here.

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for 'Finish it up Friday' again - see you there!


  1. Hi Taryn: I'm glad I found your blog. Interesting name which is what brought me here from Crazy Mom's finish it up many people posted there that it was hard to decide who to check out. Your pillow is lovely. I really like the blue fabrics you chose and it is really well constructed...I checked out your Swoon Pillow as well and was very impressed with your quilting.

  2. A lovely cushion Taryn, how many have you made from Pillow Pop now?
