Reel Time Floor Pillow


In the midst of working on new patterns, I took a little break for a fun project using Zen Chic‘s new line for Moda, Reel Time.

My absolute favorite Zen Chic line was Comma, and Reel Time picks up where Comma left off. Reel Time was inspired by movies and the film industry—but much like Comma, it’s got just a hint of industrial grunge, and I love that. : )

I’ve been thinking the girls might like a big pillow for when they’re lying on the floor watching TV, and what better fabric for that than Reel Time? I ended up pulling out the whites and grays and greens and combining them with some gray Essex linen. And then, because I’m still having my purple moment, I added a plummy pillow trim. : )

There are a ton of good stash-builder prints in this line that I’m planning to stockpile ASAP. I especially love the dot prints and these x’s inside of dots.

Want to see more of Reel Time? (Of course you do!) Check out the rest of the blog hop below! Lots more pretty projects to look at. : )

    I have decided I am a definite Zen Chic fan. Made a set of items last year with Comma and am now going to hunt out this Reel Time range. I agree with you about the industrial vibe and I love the colour choices! Your pillow looks awesome and I am enjoying seeing what the other crafters have created too

    Adore the piecing on this cushion, it's unexpected and fresh. The fabrics are lovely! I had to send you a note-your book is SO wonderful! I just bought it the other day and I'm so inspired. Gorgeousness full on. 😀

    Lee, nice touch w/the Grey Essex Linen on your floor pillows!
    The plum trim just draws all the goodness out. I'd love to rest on that pillow while tv watching:)
    Thanks for your inspiration.
    I'm an orange girl so that's whats speaking to me in the Reel Time collection.
