Poolside Pillows

We replaced our poolside furniture in time for the upcoming summer season and decided to go with Adirondack chairs because, my husband claimed, “They are so comfortable.”

Maybe for his 6’1″ frame, but not for tiny little me.

Fortunately, the quilter in me was able to provide a solution –

I actually managed to make 4 of these little lumbar pillows, but it wasn’t easy.  Outdoor fabric is so slinky, folks!  Golden Threads paper was a godsend for the quilting, but the binding especially kept trying to escape.  After these, I’m happy to return to good old fashioned 100% quilting cotton!

In any case, now I find the chairs comfortable, too – and even my husband admits they are better with the pillows than without.
