In our house we have this random cupboard under the stairs. It's pretty big but oddly shaped. I often refer to it as our Harry Potter closet because it reminds me of his room under the stairs. After trying to figure out how to store stuff in it or add shelves we decided that it's a good place for Dominic (not as a bedroom!) to have a play space that was all his. So we set out to make some pillows (and by we I mean me but Dominic did help me pick out all the scrap fabric) to make it a nice space to climb in and read a book or have some quiet time. I worked on these pillows at various Seattle Modern Quilt Guild friday night sew-in meetings starting back in September (wow, just realized it took me 5 months to make two pillow covers).
I did some simple wavy line quilting on the square pillow and a square spiral on the smaller, rectangular pillow. Dominic told me after I showed him the second one, "Oh, another rocket ship pillow. I want you to make another one because this is really awesome!" The boy sure knows how to compliment his Mom!
