PILLOW SAGA


My pillow saga started a month ago when I decided I needed four new pillows for my living room to brighten it up for summer.  You can read about the first three pillows here, here, and here.
This is pillow #4:
I randomly picked blues and reds from my scraps for the postage stamp portion, and added the polka-dot and yellow from my previous pillow.
After finishing the four pillows, I scattered them in my very traditional living room.  They looked so bright, modern and out of place!  What was I thinking???

At any rate, they are not going to waste as they look pretty good on our screened-in porch.  Not what I planned; so, back to the drawing board for the living room.

Those pillows look great in the sun room. Bright and cheerful. I like how you've repeated the fabrics but not the designs in all the pillows. Good luck with the revised living room pillows.

Well, they may not have gone in your living room but they look wonderful here. I love the variety yet they have a thread of connectivity running through them. ~smile~

No matter where you put them, they are gorgeous pillows! I love how different they are yet they work so well together. They look so pretty on your sun porch!

Your pillows are bright and colorful so a perfect fit for a sunroom. I love bright colors that pop but our brown couch does not so I feel like I need to be careful what pillow covers I use too.
