Civil War Reproduction Fabric Crazy Quilt Pillows

Mr. P asked me to make him a couple of pillows for our bench. I asked him what he wanted exactly and he asked if I had any more fabric left from the Civil War reproduction (Twister) quilt I made him a few years ago. I did have a lot of scraps left, so he asked for a crazy quilt style and he wanted both sides of the pillow made that way. He was very specific that he did not want the back to have a flap (for inserting the pillow form). It took me a day to make the crazy pieced front and back sections and then I sewed them the sides and stuffed in the pillow forms the next day. He really likes them and I am happy that he does.
Here are the 2 pillows, side A.

Here is side B for the pillows.

I started them all with a 5 sided shape and sewed pieces all around log cabin style.

  4. I love how your husband makes a request and knows exactly what he does and does not want. Fabulous pillows. You really have the Crazy Quilting down and right. The only thing missing is a ton of hand stitching on the seams and lots of embellishments...but then hubby probably wouldn't like his pillows. Great Job Dear.

  5. they look perfect on your bench, good choice of fabric. Mr. P has learned quite a bit just by living amongst so many quilts and an expert quilter.

  7. Starting with a 5 sided shape really makes an interesting design. I will definitely keep this idea in mind. And what a great way of making pillows! This bench has style. :-)

  9. Isn't it just the best how adding a simple cushion cover or switching out an old one for a new one can add just 'zip!' to your bench! Voice of experience here ;-)
