QAL Book - Pillow Pop

Okay, I know I said we'd vote, but this book has some super cute pillow patterns! I also thought that there are a lot of different QALs going on and most of them are full size quilts, this would be a great small project to do. If you have a full plate like me with WIPs and busy schedules a small, quickly finished project would a great idea. We are the Misfit Quilters and doing a QAL that isn't "normal" is right up our alley. We will be doing a slow paced QAL at just one pillow each month. Another great thing is that these are small projects that can be interchanged. Just have to buy the # of pillow forms that you intend to use for where ever you want to showcase them (ie. 2 for the couch, bed, etc). We'll make several of the same size pillows so you can have lots of options to switch.

The beautiful book is by Heather Bostic. You can follow her blog {House} of A La Mode or follow her on Twitter at @HouseofALaMode. The book is a collection of patterns by different quilters. There are 25 patterns with pillow sizes of 16, 18, or 20 inches in size. There are patterns for all levels of experience. You can grab a copy of her book from Amazon (click here or on the picture).

Go ahead and grab your copy of the book. If we do not have enough people signed up for the February Sweetheart Swap, then we will start in February.

Please check what size pillows you would like to do on the poll on the upper right hand side of the page.

Happy Stitching,
