Pillow talk

Andreena from our Sweet Pea group wanted to make a pillow (cushion) for her daughter featuring a picture of her daughter’s dog Flossie.

Flossie is Samoyed who was rescued by the SPCA.  Andreena’s daughter looks after Flossie so well. Flossie is groomed, clipped and loved to death! Flossie allows her owner to join her in collecting money for the local SPCA. Apparently she has received more donations than any other doggie.

I guess you can see why. This is dog that “smiles”.

To make the cushion, first Peggy put the image onto fabric for Andreena. Then we looked for a suitable block to pop the image into. The block we selected was Coronation from Quilters Cache.

We just took out the centre and popped the image in there. We made the block 14” and added a border.

It’s pretty swish isn’t it? Apparently Flossie’s owner ( read slave) has requested another one.

  1. The block is perfect for the photo and for a pillow.

    Flossie is a beauty: I love that smile!
