Spiderweb Pillows

We might have mentioned that we loved making Jen's square so much that we made another for ourselves.  Just one.  :) Those suckers take a lot of time! That left us each with one square that we weren't sure what to do with, so I suggested we make throw pillows! We each added some long selvage strips as a border around the edge of our quilt squares. 

We also wanted to quilt the top of our pillows, so we got to try out Mom's new walking foot!

Here is my pillow!

 I backed it with a Hobby Lobby Grecian tile print that I snagged a few months ago and fell in love with and an Amy Butler polka dot.
 It has exactly what Jen said-an i spy look to it, I love seeing scraps that I can identify as last year's 12squared quilt, the first dress I made for my big girl, and the first tote bag I made.  I love it! Thanks for inspiring us, Jen!

Here is Mom's pillow!
 I hope you can see this backing-the red is a gorgeous stripe!

 She also made one to match her Trading Pieces quilt! So pretty!!
 Happy Quilting, friends!


  1. oh, wow! i'm inspired! very cool!

  2. Love the chair - I mean pillows! You all are awesome!

    1. Do you need one for your chair(s)? Wait until you see the quilt. It is almost done.

  3. Very cute!! The term "walking foot" still doesn't make sense, but now I can kinda see it... :)

  4. I'm so impressed! Great job ladies!
