Hugs and Kisses - A Pillow Set

Here's comes Valentine's Day!
Are you going to be ready?
This year, I'll have lots of fresh and lovely
handmade items,
including this new Hugs and Kisses pillow set.

to create a whole bunch of 4-patch quilt blocks.
Before long, I had designed an X block...

and an O block, using a nice basic black blender for the background.
I like the charcoal gray undertones with the black.

My blocks finished at about 16 1/2",
which is just the right size to make a pair of pillows.

Here are the blocks made into pillow covers,
with zippered backings, to make cleaning easy.

I referred to my very own
I love the way the red Moda Swirl fabric
jazzes them up.
I finished them off with my "eamylove" label.

{Unfortunately, I think my supplier has stopped making labels.}

These pillows look so cozy and inviting on my couch.

I couldn't resist taking some glamour shots
in the morning sunlight.

These pillows are plump and full...just the way I like 'em.

Has anyone else been sewing with First Crush fabrics?
I'd love to see what you're making.

In fact...I'm going to do a little experiment to see
how much stuff I can make from this one lovely
layer cake, plus some coordinating yardage.

{Maybe I'll make some more of these pillows!}
