Those aren't pillows...

Hop on over to the Fat Quarterly blog today to find out more about this pillow I made using Moda's new line, Quilt Blocks and Jenny Pedigo's wonderful quick curve ruler.  Only over here in the UK we would call this a cushion.  A pillow is used at bedtime to put your head on.  A cushion decorates a sofa - and in expensive magazines it can also decorate a bed but there would still have to be pillows to sleep on, the cushions, or we might even call them scatter cushions, would sit on top serving no apparent purpose at all.

  1. Saw this earlier on the FQ blog and thought what a beauty it is. Fabulous fussy cutting. How did you find using the ruler and sewing the curves? I have the ruler but not used it as yet.

  8. Gorgeous! Love the cushion/pillow explanation! We have always called them cushions as well, and only since I started reading blogs have they become pillows! Too funny Lynne!

  11. hahaha...we sit on cushions here too. Sofa cushions, chair cushions...I wouldn't put a sofa or chair cushion down to lay my head on, but I could lay my head on any pillow...but never on this little beauty of a decorative throw pillow. It's gorgeous, Lynne!

  22. ahh but cushions are never wihtout purpose they are there to be beautiful to look at .. what other purpose do you need to be allowed to sit around on a bed or a couch.

  23. Being a English speaking Englander I agree...either way your cushion is gorgeous.

  24. It looks lovely but your gnashing teeth are not encouraging me to have a go! I mean if you struggled and the air turned blue ....where would that leave me!?

  25. I've lived in California my entire life. Cushions went on the sofa and pillows went on the bed! And your cushion is delicious!
