Floor Pillow Masquerading as Mini Quilt and Winner

This Monday is somewhat reminiscent of last Monday. I sort of have something mini quilt-like, but not really. I'm OK with that because the point of Mini Quilt Monday was to spur me on to try new things and I think I have. Just, sometimes the trials don't necessarily lead to a final product that can be specifically defined as a mini quilt.
But, before I get into describing my non-mini quilt, I first want to thank you all for participating in the giveaway and announce our winner:

OK, back to the regular programming.


I made a floor pillow! I've been thinking about this for a long time and I decided that this was the week to craft a floor pillow. When I was a kid, we had a bunch of floor pillows in our living room. We never sat on the couch to watch TV or read a book. We always got cozy with one or two large scale pillows. Whenever I mention that we need a few floor pillows, my kids give me quizzical looks and mutter,huh? I don't understand how they've made it this far in life without the pleasure of sprawling out on the floor with a squishy pillow. Even as I write this the pillow has already migrated to the sofa. I might have to make a stack of these before my family gets the point, but I'm determined to bring back the floor pillow as a viable seating option.

Hah! I really had to laugh at the idea that it ended up on the sofa! Never fear. They will learn.

And... if the idea of mini quilt monday was to spur creativity and try new things.. it WORKS! . It does , in fact, achieve its' goal. So...?

Mazeltov! (and I really like the floor pillow a lot too!)

LOVE the floor pillow.
Our living room has couches covered in cushions, bean bags, floor cushions, quilts, you name it.
Just one big comfy room of fabrics and softness.
Despite all this, my 3 year old daughter fell asleep yesterday afternoon on the floor!! No cushions at all. Just the hard floor. Go figure!!

I LOVE it!!! What a great idea. But just one question. How do you keep your floors sooooo clean with kids! LOL

Amber said...

Oh the floor pillow is so wonderful - we have floor pillows but none as beautiful as that one. Ours are used as fort walls or beds and yes, for watching tv too.

There are thousands of scammers online who are happy to take your money but i experienced a site related to latex mattress toppers. It is a awesome site with great knowledge.
