Preview Pillow
By Julie, Fricknits

Julie designed this pillow as a gift for a wedding shower. She writes, “It’s a preview pillow in two ways: it has the wedding date stitched on it, and these are the fabrics I will use to make the couple’s wedding quilt! So I hope they like them, because I sure do. In fact, Anna Maria Horner’s ‘Good Folks’ is my favorite fabric line to come out since I became fabric obsessed. I love it SO much I may have to make my own quilt from it.”

You can see the back of the pillow here, and a more detailed shot of the embroidered panel here. Julie adds, “One ‘trick’ I’ve come across during my recent embroidery binge is to use fabric lines I like to inspire my color combinations. I did the same thing with this piece, but using the ‘Chocolate Lollipop’ line.” Be sure to check out Julie’s embroidery set on Flickr for favorites like this great collection. Happy Birthday tomorrow, Julie!
