And some pillows...

I made this pair of pillows for daughter for Christmas.  She has requested pillows for their guest room.  A beachy sort of look.  I had already given her a quilt so the pillows needed to work with it.  The quilt was quite busy so the pillows couldn't be.  I decided to use some small scraps in the same colour palette but with lots of negative space.

So there they are.  Not matching.  Not even the same size but a pair nonetheless.  Quilted in straight lines in Aurifil 50 wt in white.  Lots of straight lines.  The pillows are backed in a natural linen/cotton blend from Robert Kaufman and a bit of a stripe.  Beachy.  And finished with an enclosed zipper which happens to be my new favourite pillow finish.

A Friday Finish.  Check.  Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday.
