Pillow Talk Pillow Fight - Round 5 - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Pillow Talk Pillow Fight – Round 5

Welcome back for round 5! This week our friends Melanie Call and Gina Tell are joining in our contest inspired by Edyta Sitar’s book, Pillow Talk:  25 Lovely Pillows for Your Home Sweet Home.

Check out our announcement post to see all the talented participants.

Without further ado, let’s see what they made!

Gina Tell’s Spectrum Pillow

Gina Tell of Thread Graffiti sewed with Spectrastatic by Giucy GiuceFragmented Stripe Yardage, and a black and white stripe from her stash. This pillow is inspired by the Spectrum design, with a little twist.

Melanie Call’s Ring Bearer Pillow

Melanie Call of A Bit of Scrap Stuff customized the Ring Bearer Pillow Talk Kit with a sweet message. I think we can all agree!

Semi-Final Round Voting

At week 4 now, here’s where we are on the bracket. Click to vote on your favorite of the first four rounds and enter to win a prize.

Get Inspired with the Pillow Talk Book

Pillows are the best way to give any room an easy refresh, and Edyta has created this book exactly for all the HGTV moments where you are tempted to do a “quick home renovation” (of which we all know there is no such thing!)  The designs in her book range from beginner to advanced and can be made using any fabric combinations you like, or with the Pillow Kits that have all you need for your DIY pillow cover.



We’ll see you back here next week to see creations by Beverly McCullough (@flamingotoes) and Sedef Imer (@downgrapevinelane)! In the meantime, if you sew up some Pillow Talk pillows, be sure to share your projects using #PillowTalkBook and tag us (@fatquartershop), @itssewemma and @laundrybasketquilts so we can see and share your work!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Would you consider having Lilly do a live video explaining all the ways to watch, participate with all the wonderful sites you have available. I watch ( usually after the fact) the youtube floss, and quilting programs. Alot of times you mention a product and say you will list a link below. There is no below when watching on TV. Also how to do the supper chats, make donations etc. I have just found this Jolly Jabber, but don’t know to keep it readily available like the groups on facebook. Are there notifications when something gets posted here? So many questions. Please consider a live Stream where she could show on ? A TV how to follow on youtube, and on a computer how to and where to find things, like links to things you offer, and donations and the superchats, how/where to send pictures. Love your live streams. Have just started cross stitching because of the floss live stream. Thank you.

  2. I agree with Melanie. I watch on Utube but would love to be more involved I have lots of questions on where to find things
