Ferris Wheel Pillow

Ferris Wheel Pillow

Ferris Wheel Pillow - detail

Ferris Wheel Pillow - side
I finished up my pillow last night! Really cold and snowy days make it perfect to stay inside and sew.

The link to the pattern is found here. I don't think I'd be up for making this into a whole quilt, but I sure do love the one that Martha made at Q is for Quilter!
I'm thinking this pillow will be just right to pull out in February as it's sort of Valentine's like. Can you see the heart shapes, too?

kelly said...

this turned out beautiful! funny enough, last night i was going through some old (mid 80's & 90's) quilt magazines from my grandma, and found the ferris wheel pattern in one of them! maybe it's a sign.

Cindy said...

Your pillow is gorgeous!

Martha said...

Jessica -- this is the most adorable pillow. It's an unusual pattern, so I'm so thrilled to see another example. I love the fabrics you've selected, and the red stitching is perfect. It's just fabulous!

This is so cute - and your fabric choices and stitching detail give such a modern feel to a traditional block!

Fantastic! It looks beautiful.

This is the most beautiful pillow I've seen in a long time! I was on a fabric diet, but this pillow makes me realize I don't have enough pinks in my stash :) Thanks for the help in getting to the pattern.

It's really, really lovely...

Jacqui said...

Love your version, the stitching really makes it! And your fabric choices are wonderful, my daughter would love it! Oh heck, *I* would love it :) Thanks for the link to the pattern so I can have one of my own!

momto2wasd said...

It's beautiful!! You could even extend the hand quilting to outline the hearts to make it very Valentiney!

craftmom said...

Hi - I am new to quilting and would like to try this. Can you tell me how many fabrics are needed and are they just all scraps? Thanks!

Domina said...

Wait - I think I see a crooked stitch! Right there, a slightly out-of-alignment handquilting stitch. Hmmmm....nope, it was just my contacts being out of place. Really, your craftsmanship is superb, which is why all your projects look great (and you're not afraid to photograph them up-close for the world to see!). Once again, great work Jess!

Caty said...

Thanks everyone for you kind comments! You've made my week, for sure!

craftmom - the fabrics are all scraps that I pulled from a bag or red and pink... no rhyme or reason as to where they are placed. ~Jessica
