Book Review: Pillow Pop

I had the chance to review the book Pillow Pop: 25 Quick-Sew Projects to Brighten Your Space, compiled by our very own Heather Bostic!  She shared a little about the book at last month's meeting, and at tonight's meeting you could win this copy!

Book Description :
This installment of the Design Collective series is stuffed full of pillows! Make a distinctive statement with eye-catching modern designs—choose from 25 different 18” to 20” square pillow projects to decorate your home. Pull out your favorite fabrics and have fun stitching up something new to adorn your bed or favorite chair. Popular blogger and modern sewist Heather Bostic brings you a sensational selection of pillow projects. Try different techniques like paper-piecing, quilting, embroidery, and appliqué. 20+ designers with fresh, modern style offer something for everyone at any skill level.

Besides pillows from Heather, this book also features some of our other guild members, how cool to see in print! I loved seeing the pillows from Jen Carlton Bailly, Mo Bedell, and Joan Callaway!

Pillow Pop shows different ways of using applique, piecing , paper piecing and embroidery to make beautiful pillows. In some cases I never would have thought of using a certain technique or pattern on a pillow, and I love all the ideas browsing through this book has given me!
