Feather Pillows - A Lovely Goal for July

Last year, when I made this quilt . . .

Sophie's Feather Bed

I made four extra feather blocks with the intent to make pillow covers. 

My goal for July is to, first find them in the aftermath of my move, and then turn them into pillows. 

I have moved into another "previously owned by an artist" house, this one with wall colors in soft shades of peach, lavender, cream and pale olive. I think this quilt will look great on my bed, a room that is painted peach with olive trim. 

I'm joining the goal-setting party for July (and hoping for a better result for me than the past few months).

The colors in your new home sound so soothing ... Good luck settling in!

So glad the move is accomplished! Now there's still unpacking, I know, but at least you are in, and I hope this landlord is MUCH better! I love the sound of those colors. I should repaint my house. All it takes is money and energy. I'm more likely to find the energy. I still love your feather quilt.

Love, love this quilt! What ribbons did you win?
I've bought some fabrics to make mine but haven't started yet.

Goals? Sigh! My goal at the moment is to finally organize my "queendom". With all those projects it has gone out of hand and when you can't find things any more ... This morning I tackled a box which had not been opened since our move in 2008. I would like to have half your energy, Sophie. And while I am at it: half your talent too. Wishing you lots of happiness in your new home!

Such a stunning quilt. Your new house sounds lovely. Good luck finding those blocks! Once you find them I know you will make it to your goal.
