IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR

At least it's the time of year in Southern California that people are thinking their outdoor furniture/cushions need updating.
The patchwork pillow is a favorite of mine.  
My client loved this Tommy Bahama fabric.

The bench cushion and ottoman (not pictured) got a contrast welting so that everything tied together.  And what you cannot see is that all the pillows are reversible, so my client can change the look whenever she wishes.
The 'back' sides of two of the larger pillows.
The way I see it is, by making both sides of the pillows different, you get twice as many pillows for your money.

This is timely. Spring fever must be slowly creeping over the nation. I posted yesterday about staging your house to give home buyers spring fever. And I spent all day today shopping for fabric to cover boat cushions. I looked at these very same fabrics, but settled on a blue and white coral pattern. I like your idea of making the pillow reversible. I might incorporate that. Thanks.
