P is for Pillow Placement

The ABC’s of window treatments

One of my favorite rooms to sew for has to be the bedroom because not only do I make window coverings but I also get to make bedding.  I’ve already written a post about pillows but today I wanted to talk about all the different arrangements for the pillows on your bed.

Five 22” + one 18”……………

Three 24” + two king + rectangle……………

I like all of these but I personally prefer two queen shams and one throw pillow.  I’m happy as long as it doesn’t take too long to make the bed.  How long do you think this bed takes to make ?

Great post, Tammy! That last one is pretty but having to fix all those pillows every day would put me over the edge. :-)

We use two regular size pillows each, and one 18"! Very easy to make. No, I can't imagine having to pick up all those pillows off the floor every day!
Tammy: I am in heaven down here...maybe heading over to Crabtree later today to explore!Can't wait...

I love pillows and used to have more decorative ones...Recently I got some new bedding from PB. Now I do a more casual look... I fold my sheet down over the turned back comforter. I pile all 4 of our sleeping pillows on with 2 queen shams over them. I KNOW I need one more in the center to balance them out, but I just haven't had time to make one... Maybe after Thanksgiving :)
