The Rejected Pillow

blackkitty likes the fish cat bed and Wyatt likes the cathedral windows pillow. Ellie just likes to crowd Wyatt wherever he sleeps. so once again, i tried to craft her a special Ellie-approved bed.

I made the Chopped Vegetables pillow from oh fransson. I used the tutorial from sew mama sew for the back. this is definitely my favorite backing so far--i'll probably use it again.

this was a fun pillow to make but it made a lot of leftover scraps. i kept them for use in a future scrap project. i did free motion quilting. one thing i've learned is that so far i'm much better at allover patterns than i am with directional ones. the quilting on this one isn't stellar, but it's good to get practice anyway.
Ellie on her new bed
i bribed Ellie with catnip for the picture but she's rejected it in real life. Wyatt, who always loves the newest and shiniest toy best has adopted it instead. and Ellie still crowds him when he's on it but not when it's free. go figure.

i'm entering this pillow in the Blogger's Pillow Party. I love looking at the pillows people post. they're all so lovely.

  1. Great pillow and super sweet kitty!

  2. Cats are so predictable. Of course, catnip worked. I find it adorable that Ellie only wants to be where Wyatt is. My cats have never really taken to a bed, but they do fight over certain spots, like the ironing board. Perhaps if I put a bed up high, then they would start using it. Your new pillow is very fun. I really love the striped strip on the back!

  3. Wow, this is so cool! I wasn't crazy about Oh Fransson's Chopped Vegetables patterns when I first saw them but I LOVE yours with the different colors and dark background! Amazing how different a pattern can look!

  4. I love it...funky coolness is what pops into my head when I see it :o)

  5. Beautiful! I love this pillow. And your cat is so cute ;)
