a pillow for travelling dreams

As we are saying goodbye to this summer,
it is fun to look back to some of our previous vacations,
dreaming of past and future travels,
as close as a day trip in DC,
or as far away as Provence....

So I sewed this linen pillow,
with paper pieced book covers!

The pattern is "tall tale" from "Quilt with Kate",
available on Craftsy here (free).

I used a print from Robert Kaufman "Dream vacation",
choosing 4 post cards of places we have visited,
some recently, some a long time ago,
and mixing prints for the spines and the pages.

This is not my first time playing with books.
Previously I had made a book bag with spines of book:

also in linen and that time, some Liberty of London.

This pillow is perfect to snuggle on the chair,
dreaming of next year's summer vacation...

Happy sewing!

    1. Thank you Ginnie, you are too kind! I do not have enough time for quilts anymore so pillows have to do! Luckily my family thinks it is OK to have new pillow covers on a regular basis....
