Pillow Talk Pillow Fight - don't forget to VOTE!

It's time for Round 5 of the Pillow Talk Pillow Fight with Fat Quarter Shop AND Guess What?!?!?  It's my turn to participate!  I'm so excited to join in this super fun Pillow Fight with my friend Gina! (PS - if you need a quilt long armed - she's awesome)

Fat Quarter Shop is making the Pillow Talk Pillow Fight super fun by having everyone VOTE for their favorite pillow each week ....who will be the Pillow Fight Champion???

My Pillow: Ringer Bearer (18" x 18")

I chose to "compete" with the awesome Ring Bearer Pillow Pattern in the Pillow Talk Book and used the Ring Bearer kit because all the tiny petals are already cut and fused with the adhesive - wahoo!!! YES - all 78 pieces! The kits are a really good deal because they include the pillow front background fabric and all 78 tiny appliqué pieces cut and fused ---such a time saver! 

I wanted to personalize my Ring Bearer Pillow --- so I embroidered "Family is Forever" in the middle. I LOVE it!  I used Kimberbell Happy Home for the "Family is Forever" so it was fun to stitch with my Janome 550E embroidery machine --- don't worry there is a sewing version too so you can hand embroider if you prefer! 

Since the appliqué shapes were precut with fusible adhesive, I simply ironed the shapes to the pillow front based on the Ring Bearer Pattern in the Pillow Talk Book. Then I machine quilted with a stipple over the entire pillow front!

If you watch Fat Quarter Shop Live Stream on Friday (YouTube) - you can "see" my Ring Bearer Pillow in  person as Kimberly will be sharing both Gina's and my pillow!  

When my Ring Bearer Pillow returns from its Texas Travel it will be perfect for my living room!!! I'm going to remind my kiddos this pillow is decoration only ;)
