Ryan's Awesome Tutorial

Ryan Walsh of "I'm Just a Guy Who Quilts" put together a great tutorial on a pillow he completed for round 2 of Pillow Talk Swap (tutorials). I just couldn't resist giving it a try with some bits of Ginger Blossoms which I had left over after piecing a quilt top which I will show you soon.

I love the result, as it's in my favorite colors, and I decided to go with a more symetrical style which is definitely more me.

I also made a pillow for my daughter's best friend who loves Amy Butler fabrics (she's only 13!). I was inspired by a pillow I had previously seen on flckr here but I decided to hand embroider the dahlia onto the front of the pillow. My daughter's friend loved it.


  1. These are simply lovely! I'm not sure which I like the most but I think I'd sleep with both of them ;)

  2. Love the pillows!! Especially the Ginger BLossom one. I've got to give that a try!

  3. Lord help me for I am coveting these pillows. Oh my gosh they are amazing!! Thank you for sharing, keep up the wonderful work!

  4. Gorgeous pillow Marianne. Thanks for mentioning my tutorial. :)
