The TDF pillow

Ok, first of all, TDF comes from To Die For :). I know, my inspiration in naming quilts is next to zero :)). Just so you know :)))

Now a little about the quilt.
I started with Malka's pillow in mind and began drawing. Squares, random squares, random colours. And, well...

This is the inspiration pic by Malka Dubrawsky

And this is the pillow
Pillow for the TDF quillt


I had to talk about the quilt first because, you see, this pillow is the quilt's pillow. They only come toghether. It's a little continuum concept in here :))) and, well, at least for a couple of yeas they'll only be seen together :))

As you might suspect, this post is for the Blogger's Pillow Party hosted by Rachel from Stiched in colour. See more about the Pillow Party under the button.

Blogger's Pillow Party



A little about the technique:
I used 1" gray kona strips, folded in half and sewn on the squares, to frame them. After the frame was sew, white/yellow borders were added to make the block. And I am saying this because I dreamt :D about other ways to make this frame happen and it didn't work. Yes, I actually dream about making quilts :D.

And I have no ideea how I felt like making one of the frame's strips in blue. It just came :). And I think it's even more TDF now :)))

The back is anvelope style, with Ikea's writing, just like the quilt's back.

Hope you like it, I looove it.


P.S. If it's a pillow party I am guessing it's all about pijamas. I'm wondering if I should post a pic with mine? :D

  2. I have been loving this quilt for a while now. Every time I see a picture of it I sort of sigh. Love the pillow too. I know what you mean about naming quilts...my creativity just stops when the quilt is done I guess. Have a great new year.

  3. Rachel,
    Well, now that you said, I'll say it too: I was in my pijamas when I wrote the post. And maybe also when I made it, but I'll never admit it :)))))))

    Mari,
