DS "Log cabin" pillow

I {still} had all of my Denyse Schmidt Picnic and Fairground fabrics out after the DS DQ swap, and wanted to make an “Autumn” pillow for the Celebrate Color event at Stitched In Color.

I decided to mainly use the lovely mustardy yellows that we were so lucky to have in our Spotlight stores in Australia and added in a few of the reds and blues to add a bit more interest:
I did a QAYG log cabin style pillow cover which ended up at 17 inches square. With an 18 inch pillow form inside, this has become quite a nice plump and cuddly pillow.
I am linking this to {Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations and to Fabric Tuesday at Quiltstory (buttons in sidebar) and also to Farbstoff's pillowtalk for November:

  1. Kirsten, the pillow looks so cute. The warmth of the colors, especially of the yellow shades, gives me a sense of cosyness. Thank you so much for adding it to the Pillow Talk!

  2. I love those Denyse Schmidt fabrics - I haven't been able to get hold of any of them over here! They make a most beautiful cushion.

  5. Kirsten, I really like this cushion! Like the previous commenter, this really caught my eye in the linky party. Great colour choices, and I love the quilting you did.

  6. Hi! That's beautiful! I love those small stripes and colours which you have placed to well!

  7. Great pillow/cushion, Kirsten! Log Cabins are classic, and I love your combination of fabrics. Those mustard-yellows are my favorite!

  8. Great pillow! :) Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern MOnday and have a great week!

  9. Turned out lovely! I always like blue with yellow and log cabins too. Thanks for joining in with Celebrate Color!
