    Smile 2 pillows to match the "can this quilt be saved?" quilt

    So many of you commented on my "Can this quilt be saved?" post and commiserated and offered suggestions to help me save the Christmas gift. I did find someone who is willing to rip the bad stitching out and re-quilt it, for which I am very, very grateful. I made two throw pillows to match the quilt and will send them with a picture of the quilt and an explanation.

    The rail fence-type quilt is made from left-over border from the quilt and the other is just a block that I liked.

    The colors are so different even though they're the same fabric! The pillows are closest to real life.

    Thanks for looking!

    This is still the poorly done quilt. It looks great from a distance, but up close and from the back, is awful. It's still being fixed, but I did send my friend this picture so that she'll see that there is a quilt to go with the pillows.

    Your pillows are nice and I am glad you were able to find someone to "save" and quilt your quilt. It turned out lovely.
