Nautical Pillow

Today I want to share with you a pillow that I made this summer that has recently been published in International Quilt Scene Magazine by Interweave Press. I’m a sucker for anything Nautical and I hope you are too.

Oh I just love this one! If you’ve followed me for even a little bit, you’ll know that my favorite projects tend to be ones that combine whimsy with precision. And I think you get both with this pillow.

I just got the pillow back in the mail last week along with some copies of the magazine, and I was thrilled to discover that I’m a mini cover girl! (The main cover girl there is Elizabeth, lucky gal!) But I’m stealing a little of her cover time down there in the corner. 😉

It’s always fun to see how they photograph your items as well. I love that they let the pillow be center stage here. You never know what they will do! 😉

Now I don’t know that I could bare to part with mine, but if you could I think that this would be a perfect addition to any Nautical themed nursery or children’s room. Heck, toughen up those fabrics a bit and add it to your fella’s man cave. The beauty of nautical design…it’s timeless and truly suits everyone.

  1. Congratulations – this is a wonderful accomplishment! I love you pillow – I am married to a retired sailor – we have a constant nautical theme running through our house. I am going to have to make one of these.

  2. I need to make this pillow! Congratulations on being a cover girl. I bought the mag a week or so ago. There are some awesome festival quilts in it, and a bunch of great patterns!
