A quick detour

I am still thinking about my map quilt, but haven't done much.  Instead I have been putting a bit of extra time into the hand sewing, since I have a quilt heading towards done.  I have also made two cushions (or pillows).  I've never tried this before but it's been kind of fun.  

Here's one with a pillow (or cushion) pad, though not one that's quite big enough, just one that was lying around.
 And a second one, which is smaller.
I have one more of these in the works, but I'm still quilting it.

These are so pretty! That sky would just not be a wonderful without that fabulous bird fabric.

I love how a pillow cover / cushion transforms when the form is placed inside!

Beautiful hand quilting and piecing, Kaja.
All the prints and colors work great together too!

These will make a wonderful set. The lighthouses really shine against the blues. Love the birds on your sky fabric; it really looks like they are near the shore as the fishing boats return.
I can’t tell that the pillow insert is small but perhaps it will fill the second quilt better. I’ve come to enjoy overstuffed pillows. They ju#t seem so luxurious. A treat for a lazy day of resting.

Detours are always worthwhile. Lovely pillows. Gives me ideas for a small project.

They are really quite lovely. I can almost hear the birds and smell the water.
