These were inspired by the current cover of Stitch magazine.  We have needed new throw pillows for our sofa since we got it and I finally got motivated!  They are a mixture of hand embroidery and free motion quilting and made with a mixture of wool felt and ecofelt.

And a group shot - there is actually 1 more that didn't make the picture.  It is very similar to the linen one with the large circles except it is green corduroy.

Thanks for looking!

The pillows look great mimiw!  So bright and cheery!  I can only imagine the time it took to handstitch the circles!

These pillows are so cute. Maybe once I get my apartment completely cleaned out, I tackle a project like this one. Wisting!

As always, great workmanship!  I always enjoy your color combos as well.  As L2E said, your hand embroidery must have taken some time!  Nice work!

Awesome!  I recognized these right away as I bought that issue of Stitch because I was so attracted to the pillow!!  (Of course I haven't made a single effort to start one of my own.)  Wink  You, on the other hand, went to town!!  FABULOUS job!!

Great interpretation of the pillow on the cover of the Interweave 'Stitch' magazine. One of my favorite magazines out there. I love the colors of yours and all of the different shapes.

Thanks for all the pillow love! 

Now that the hand stitching is a few weeks behind me I am liking them even more.  I have even thought that maybe I need a few more...
