Stitch& Slash pillows

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The fabric selection, with the help of some very dedicated ladies at my favorite quilt shop, we were able to select fabrics that stand up well with my existing pillows. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow your heart and trust your design instinct. I also used colored pencils ito create my rough designs and see how closely I could come to my inspiration piece.

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Wow. Fabulous. I can't say enough. You are an inspiration to us all (including me!) Your monochromatic color scheme and choice of a solid on the top with decorative stitches really makes your work stand out.
Tussie Mussie Creations answered:
Thank you so much Carol. Actually, the top fabric is a small print with orange and red dots with black dashes on yellow.

Beautiful pillows - designs! I just bought the class and hope my work turns out near the beauty of your pieces. I have some goldish linen that would look great to back your pillows! :)

Thanks, with 2 cats, I'm going with something a little more sturdy, a black ultra suede that will contrast nicely with my camel color sofas.
