These pillows have been done for forever, but I just hadn't gotten around to photographing them. Silly me!
Just a couple of orphan blocks lying around. And you can never have too many pillows, right? Got to at least try that spiral quilting (needs some work). And I get to check them off the 2QFAL list!
On another note, I wanted to introduce you to my two new pin bowl friends.
Pistachio and Cherry:
Don't tell Pistachio, but Cherry is my favorite. And I'm just now realizing that these are Christmas colors. Sigh. I LOVE Christmas!
I got pistachio as a gift from a friend. I wanted two (actually, I want ten!), but these were pretty hard to come by. But then I found a new source for them. Same product. Identical workmanship. And available for more than five minutes at the crack of dawn a few days a year! I think I'm going to get yellow and aqua to round out the collection.
So go here if you want a pin bowl yourself. They even take pre-orders and ship internationally.
Edited to add:
I guess I don't have a problem with someone seeing a successful, but limited product, and capitalizing on it. The maker of the "original" pin bowls had a great idea, but her product is only available in random fits and starts and it got very frustrating if you missed that tiny window of opportunity. If someone else is offering the same product (and you can't trademark/copyright a polka dot) with a different approach to supply/demand, I say, "Yay!"
From a fabric buyer's perspective, I don't want to have to set my alarm to buy a certain fabric before it sells out.
But I'm interested. Your thoughts?
