On my February 3 blog posting, I kicked off the first annual Pillow Sewing Challenge. I am thrilled so many of you decided to step up to the challenge. Each participant was asked to sew and submit up to four pillow projects. Five prize winners will be selected based on YOUR votes and you can vote up to five times.
Can you ask friends to vote? Certainly! Share this blog post? Please. Each person will be able to cast up to five unique votes.
Good luck! The voting will close on March 14, 2015. We’ll announce the winners, at my blog, on March 17, 2015.
Tech Tip from Nancy: If the images are small on your computer screen, use Ctrl + to increase the images on the screen. Use Ctrl – to reduce the size when finished.

    When I make pillows I add quilt a stripe batting in the seam allowance, it seems to round the seam out also often add stuffing I the corners or bigger prices of batting. Thanks

    All of the pillows are beautiful, and it was hard to vote for only five. Thank you for having this challenge so we can all see so many great pillows. I’m getting some good ideas for my next pillow project.
