    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?

    wow, haven't gotten into the whole black and white, or the black, white and red...but yours are awesome.
    I did see somebody's black and white with a splash of color and like those.
    I have a project that will use more than these colors, but def. these.
    Those are very inspiring. It looks like rail fence. That's one I can do!
    very nice. :D

    It's a half log cabin block.

    Of course, I used fewer logs and didn't paper piece it. ;)

    You can do all the same settings as you do with regular log cabins, and it's much easier to keep square.
