Arbor Blossom Hourglass Pillow

Arbor Blossom Hourglass Pillow by Heidi Staples for Fabric Mutt

There are a few designers who just have a knack for creating sweet floral prints, and Nadra Ridgeway of Ellis & Higgs is one of them. I want a whole bouquet of her flowers on fabric! Her new collection Arbor Blossom is just as lovely as her previous two lines, and I really enjoyed turning these prints into a simple patchwork pillow using a traditional hourglass block.

The pillow feels so vintage to me. I tried to pair similar colors in each block within both the feature and background prints. The white borders and colorful cornerstones let the blocks stand out a bit within the pillow top.

My favorite print in the whole collection is this blue floral -- so lovely! I tried making my first button closure for the envelope backing, and I love the way it turned out.

The faux weave on the button surface makes me think of lattices and wicker furniture, playing nicely with the Arbor Blossom theme.

  10. How sweet is that pillow?!! And beautiful fabric too ;-) But I have to ask: Which brand is that cute Winnie the Pooh? I am a severe fan of classical Pooh but have never seen this plushy.
