Are you following the pillow talk?

MODA- in style, fashionable
PILLOW- (throw pillow) small pillow for decoration: a small decorative pillow placed on a couch or an armchair.
TALK-to reveal information, especially when being pressured to do so
Welcome to the Moda Pillow Talk Blog Hop!
Each of the designers were challenged (by me) to make a pillow that describes them. It could be their design process, their history of textiles or just as simple as something that makes them happy. The definition above for talk seemed fitting since I did pressure them to talk about themselves and stand up in front of people. The pressure has continued because now I have asked them some intriguing questions. They will be revealing some answers during their "Pillow Talk". I promise nothing to risque. Oops, I can't promise anything with this bunch of gals except that you will WANT to follow along.
Just one of the questions the moda designers will be answering during the blog hop.....
Do you sew in bed? Read? Watch TV? Eat?
