X-factor pillow - received from Cottilello

Once again, there were some really gorgeous pillows in the third round of the X-factor pillow swap, and I was the very lucky recipient of this one from Cottilello (Tina).
There was a theme of triangles this time around, and Tina made the most beautiful pillow in royal blue linen and scrappy green which she has named  "Broken Chain" .
The blue and lime colour scheme is beautiful and I loved the handquilting on this too. The pillow has a very neat zipper enclosure on the back which is something that I have yet to attempt - maybe it should be on my resolutions for next year:)
The pillow I made for the swap is still on its way to it's new home. There will be another round of this swap in the new year, with possible suggestions of a scrappy squares theme which would be fun!


  1. Lovely cushion. This swap is fab and I keep meaning to participate but life keeps getting in the way. How rude of life!

  2. Lucky you! The stitching is great!

  3. Gorgeous pillow and the handstitching is perfect!

  4. Very nice pillow! I love the blue!

  5. wow, that blue is vibrant! sounds like a fun swap :D
