New Pillows

I have been wanting to make some new pillows for my living room.  Every time I read a magazine, I think of pillows and colors that I want to use and make.  All of the magazines are showing such wonderful colors for spring like seafoam green and pale blues.  I love the colors and wanted to brighten up my living room.  The pillows really did make a difference.  Maybe just because they are something new.  I'm happy with the look.

I have been going towards seafoam green and pale blues a lot recently.  So, I went through my stash of garage sale fabrics that I had and picked the ones closest to those colors.  The one pillow has blue and brown in it.  I didn't want to put any trim on it because I thought the pattern was wonderful just the way it was and wanted to draw attention to the color and pattern.  The other pillow has a great floral pattern with a greenish background.  I found an applique piece that I had made a few years ago and used that as the focal point for my pillow.    I kept these two pillows simple this time.  They blend in well with the other pillows that I made. 

There are two more pillows that I would like to make.  I'm coming up with ideas for those, but already have the fabric picked out.  I just may keep those simple also.
