MQPS.....

stands for Modern Quilted Pillow Swap!

This is secret sewing at its best!

Simply...make a pillow and send a photo to Tiina the 

administrator!

Close up!

They are published on Flick'r under the MQPS 


banner.....

When the time is up everyone with a pillow entered 

ranks them!

The back.....

It's fun trying to guess who, from this group of 60+ 

sewers, made what!

The maker of the pillow with the most votes receives 

her first choice, and so on! 

This is the pillow I made...


inspired by a mini quilt I saw here!

I used my Echo scraps and Kona Ash.

It's now off to its new home,

and I'm waiting to see which one is mine?

It's a shame MrPnP was partial to this one......

Typical!

Happy sewing!

  1. I love your cushion - looks like your Echo scraps were put to good use! It is often surprising what can be achieved with a limited quantity and a bit of imagination.

  5. Beautiful! Why are they always partial to stuff we give away and more critical of the things we make for keeping? Sillies... :)

  8. Great idea; I would be paranoid about having to keep mine as it was ranked last by everyone!
    Love yours!

  11. I love this kind of swap, I'm hoping I can join in at some stage in the not too distant future.
    That is a fabulous use of scraps Suz, it's lovely I can understand why the Mr would like to have kept it.

  16. BEAUTIFUL! It's amazing how you can make gorgeous things like this with your little scrappy bits. Well done.

  17. I love these little flashes of colour. I'd like a whole scrappy quilt like this. Would that be too huge a project for this technique? Pardon me for asking but being rather newish to quilting, I am constantly amazed at how long the various steps in quilting take me. Now when I see that someone has just made a cushion, I start to wonder if that isn't because a big quilt is just too much of a commitment for a particular block or technique. Of course, it's always possible that someone just wanted a cushion, which might be the case here since it looks like a relatively easy design. Still, I don't trust my own perceptions.
