i finally made these pillows as gifts for a friend - now they are a very, very late birthday (october!!) and/or christmas present..
the quilting on the linen-one somehow did smooth some of the outer straight edges of the patched-design, it now looks a bit like a circle - an unexpected but nice effect.
the linen is just perfect with those Amy Butler fabrics, which became quite classic already.
they are fun/cheerful designs but quite grown-up, too, which i like these days.
