J'Adore Paris

When I mentioned Moda's Etchings by 3 Sisters on my blog a while back, my sister asked for something for Christmas made from the blue Paris map fabric so I've made her these two pillows, to her size specification, but I have no pillow forms in that size so have had to photograph them flat.


They are dead simple but I really just wanted the pillows to be all about the fabric and not some kind of patchworky extravaganza because not everyone likes their house to be filled with an abundance of overly patchworky patchwork.  My house is getting that way and I wonder if it's becoming abnormally so yet.  Has my house become "weird quilting house" as my son predicted 18 months ago?  In other news, I am going to be getting my grubby little hands on some of this Dear Stella line "J'Adore Stella" which I have been eyeing for a while at the Fat Quarter Shop.


I have no specific plans for it as yet but I have a sneaking suspicion my sister may end up with more Paris themed pillows before too long.  Look at this wonderful Paris map print.


And these Eiffel Towers.


These cyclists.


And these birdcages which I know Leila will love.


At this rate, my sister's flat will turn into weird patchworky Paris pillows apartement.  Get me, French n all.

  4. I didn't know until recently the etchings map fabric came in blue. I've got some black on white which is being worked into my hexie quilt. I'm doubly excited every time I see. (Not just because it's fab fabric as your cushions show!) but because Chief says if he doesn't get down to me for new year he's taking me to Paris for my birthday treat! :-)

  8. My daughter will marry next summer and they plan to go to France for their honeymoon. I think I will get some of this lovely fabric and perhaps make some cushions for her!

  12. It's beautiful! I think you have a weird patchwork house when you've got patchwork curtains and are considering covering the ceiling with a quilted 'something'!

  13. Oh I love the map prints from that Etchings line. And hey, what's wrong with turning your relatives into the people with the patchworky houses? ;o)

  14. Oh I looove that sketchy little map fabric. Sweet!

    Patchworky patchwork...my husband has advised that the day I don a patchwork vest is the day he files for divorce.

  15. "vest" being the Canadian version which I believe is a "waistcoat" where you are.

  18. oooh just nosing through old blog entries and found this one on MY cushions. I love them and park my derrière (just to prove I speak the lingo) on one every day while I work on my beloved, but cold and uncomfortable, formica chairs. I really am the epitome of hipness.
