    They have a very modern red and black family room. The pillows are the same on both sides. Instead of spending $8 for each pillowform, I bought two $3 bed pillows at Walmart and cut them down to size (18").

    Beautiful!

    And what a great idea! I try and change my pillows every year on the beds that get a lot of use so I have lots of pillows around... hmmmm... I'm sure they'd be fine inside a quilted pillow form!

    :D I love those! I also use those cheapy pillows from Walmart or K-mart. I just squish the stuffing over and make it work.............I also use old bed pillows for the dog beds. Stitch 2-4 together, just thru the fabric, not the stuffing, and make a "pillow case" to fit the pillow unit. Velcro close the end. :wink: Works great! at least I get lots of kisses from the doggies that use them.....

    Oh hey cathe ! Those are so nice! I love the color theme you used for them. I think the fabrics prints are just wonderful together. Just the right scale. Thanks for the tip on the pillow forms, I never thought of that.
    I am thinking log cabin right?
