Happy Valentines Day!



Here are four of my very small collection of very small pillows. They are on a doll dresser in the front hallway.



The heart shaped one is covered with white buttons, and is 7 inches in width. All the buttons are sewed on, and it is backed with muslin and is filled very firmly with batting.  It was an ebay purchase.



The felt flowers and beads pillow is filled with rice and is 6" x 6", and is all hand stitched. I don't remember where I got it, but possibly my friend Dee made it for me.

The little "H" cross stitched one is 5.5" square, and is filled with lavender.  I love it so much, because it is backed with blue plaid, and the cross stitching is so tiny, and it smells so lovely.  Again, an ebay purchase.


The embroidered flower basket pillow is 6.5" square, and is a very pale pink, with a lovely small pink print on the back.  Filled with cotton batting.  I bought it at a craft fair years ago, and don't remember the time or place.


This week I've been working on more blocks for my Indigo Dear Jane quilt.



To see what others have on their design walls this morning, go to Patchwork Times, Judy Liquidara's website to see pictures of a lot of quilter's design walls.  (Here)

  1. Your button heart pillow is so sweet. I saw this a long time ago and tried to make one, without success. Maybe I'll try again! Lovely

  2. I love that button pillow. That would be a perfect Christmas gift for someone I know. Very cute arrangement with all the little pillows together.

  3. I love all those pillows. I have a primitive doll whose head is covered in old buttons, all sewn on, in lieu of hair. She wears a dress made from an old chenille bedspread. Your button pillow reminds me of her. The blocks look great, too. I LOVE the fussy-cutting on the top one.

  4. I LOVE the button pillow. I also like the idea of a such a "large" pillow filled with lavender - maybe someday when my lavender garden takes off. One can hope!

  6. I love your pillows and your DJ blocks. The first one is the block that gave me major headaches and I haven't made a DJ block since! Yours looks a lot better than mine!

    I can't imagine sewing all those buttons on - but it sure is precious.
    Your Jane blocks are gorgeous!
