Bench Pillow!

I am sure many of you know that Kimberbell has a series of bench pillow cases that are made monthly during the course of a year.  I started getting these in January and have not made one yet up until this week.   I opened up my kit of beautiful fabrics and started.
I thought I would get the pillow form out of the way.  It is not a standard size that you can find in the craft stores.  The pattern tells one how to construct it.  
 Once the pillow was done I could start with the fun part of constructing the pillow case.
 There is a bit of embroidery, appliqué and three dimensional fabric folding.
 I quilted the pillowcase yesterday afternoon.  It is so festive and patriotic looking.  I can't wait to make another one.  This block is for July if you were wondering.


  1. What a wonderful pillow case. Very nice idea, love it.

  2. What a great pillow. I has such a fresh, beachy look about it!

  3. Wow that is fabulous! Love the pinwheels!

  4. Even though I'm not an American I think this is pretty cool - love that red white and blue combination :-)
