Nautical Patchwork Signal Flag Pillow Cover

We sometimes come up with ideas that we think would be really cool. Because we love the signal flags that we make.  We came up with the idea of making nautical pillow covers. Our thoughts were to make a cover that would fit a standard pillow and it could be used to add a nautical touch to any room or inside a boat or yacht. The one thing we wanted to do is use only the colors of our signal flags and to make it look like a patchwork quilt. We made several variations to see which would look the best. One example is below.

The main problem with the concept is the time involved with making them. They roughly take about 5 to 5 1/2 hours to make. We both have had our pillow cover now for about 6 months and they are holding up great and the color is still nice and bright just like our flags.

We felt the price that we would have to charge for making them and the material wouldn’t be cost effective but wanted to share here on my blog how cool they look.  The below picture shows what they would look like on a love seat.
