Bloggers Pillow Party

Blogger's Pillow Party

I thought this looked like fun! The Blogger's Pillow Party! I've decided to put my Angry Birds pillow in the running... who knows maybe the judge is a big fan. There are lots of us out there!!

You might remember seeing this pillow I made last month as a birthday present for a friend. I was inspired to make this for him because we are both huge addicts of the game. He is actually my boss too and as the evenings start to draw to a close at the restaurant we sit at the bar playing Angry Birds. He plays on his iPad while I play on my little iPhone as I haven't yet joined the iPad world. He was very excited to get the birds pillow, and it is in a very good home. But I'm a little upset I had to part with it. Here is the original blog post.


I was really excited about the way the pillow turned out. The sky and grass is all pieced. The rest of the elements are all attached with my favorite little helper 'Steam a Seam'. I cut all the pieces out by hand. I had a printout of all the characters that I used as a template. There is some light straight line quilting on the gray border.


The back has three stars that are appliqued on and there is some light straight line quilting.


Here are some shots to give you a better look at those adorable birds & pigs:

The pupils on the blue bird were not fun to cut or attach!


The mustache pig is my personal favorite!

There are lots of great pillows already for the judges to chose from. Entries close on the 26th and a winner is announced on the 27th. I'm hoping to come up with something FANTASTIC for March as I've got my eye on that Sherbet Pips prize!!

Wow, this is fab! I've seen tutorials for making angry birds but had no idea what they were until my stepdaughter started playing it on her grandad's i-phone... so it's something technological!

Just saw your Angry bird pillow via the pillow party link - it's amazing! My partner was addicted to that game, which he has now completed, fortunately, so I have him back!
