the oliver + s stop on the moda pillow talk blog hop

Have you been following the Moda pillow talk blog hop?

At Quilt Market last fall, each Moda designer was asked to make and present a pillow that describes our creative journey, our design process, our background, or something unique about us. Now we’re each presenting our pillows on-line. And today’s the day for my pillow.

You probably already know that my background is in apparel design. I worked as a clothing designer for Ralph Lauren and for Tommy Hilfiger before S was born, and I left my job in order to stay home with her. From there, Oliver + S came to be. (If you want the whole story, you can listen to Hillary’s podcast to hear all the gory details of starting a business when you have a small child at home.)

So when Lissa, our fearless Moda leader, asked for a pillow describing this process, the design solution was fairly straightforward. My pillow should be clothing, right?

This pillow was made from a (now out-of-print)  Puppet Show tunic. This particular dress was made for a photo shoot and trunk show shortly after I launched the company. The fabric is from one Sandy Klop’s first American Jane collections. I love Sandy’s fabric and quilt designs, and it wasn’t until after I started designing fabric for Moda that we realized Sandy’s daughter and I were house-mates and friends in college! So I feel like we’ve got a special connection.

As part of the pillow talk tour, we’re supposed to answer a few specific questions. I suspect this is all more than you want to know about me, but here we go….

What is a little known fact about yourself?

Early in my career, before I returned to school to study fashion design, I worked for one of the world’s wealthiest men. One day I hand-wrote a check to the government to cover his quarterly income tax payment. The check was so many digits long that I had to stop afterward and shake myself.

How do you relax?

I like to hang out with my family, visit museums, explore New York City, read, sew, and get together with friends. Recently I’ve been doing a little sewing for myself and have been catching up on some old New Yorker magazines. I can’t seem to keep up with magazines and books simultaneously, so the magazines stack up while I’m immersed in books.

What do you sleep in –  PJ’s or nightgown?

I don’t like to have anything tangled around my legs when I’m sleeping, so I don’t really care for nightgowns or pajama pants. As a result, I usually wear a pair of my husband’s boxers with an old T-shirt. This really should change, I know. One of these days I’ll have to become a grown-up. But it gives me a good excuse to buy him funny boxers!

What kind of pillow do you like, hard or soft, foam or feather? And why?

Any pillow that’s big and fluffy, preferably down.

When you were young did you sleep with  a  stuffed animal? If so what?

Oh yes. I was very close to Teddy. Today S has Bear, and I still have my Teddy. Teddy and Bear are now very close friends, although S is rather worried about the stuffing poking out of Teddy’s nose. She takes good care of him for me. That’s him in the photo above, wearing the brown fur coat.

Do you sew in bed? Read? Watch TV? Eat?

No to all of the above. I’m not allowed! I do all my reading on the sofa before going to bed because it keeps Todd awake if I read in bed, even with my trusty headlamp. And neither of us like crumbs in the bed, so food isn’t allowed.

How many nights have you or your spouse spent on the couch?

I sometimes move out to the sofa if I can’t sleep, but it’s not a full-length sofa so it’s not really a viable option. In our tiny apartment everyone has to get along because there isn’t enough space to NOT get along. See? There really is something good about living in a small space! We’re very close–physically and emotionally.

Nighttime toddy?

Does it count that my husband’s name is Todd?

Early to bed or all-nighter?

I read somewhere that creative people are frequently night owls. This certainly holds true for me. Back in design school I was just getting started at 11:00. I still have my best ideas late at night, but I wish I was a morning person. And I don’t tolerate caffeine well, so coffee isn’t an option. I guess I’m naturally caffeinated.

Who would you most like to have a pillow fight with?

Perhaps with Lissa, once we’ve all done the pillow talk hop? (Watch out, Lissa!)

Alright, let’s do a giveaway! I’ve been paying attention to how these things are done and now know the proper way to do this.

1. Leave a comment telling me who you would most like to have a pillow fight with and you’ll be entered to win, courtesy of Moda, a Jelly Roll from this coming spring’s Oliver + S  fabric collection which is called Modern Workshop. (We’ll have more to say about this collection in coming months.) In addition to the fabric, we’ve designed a special Modern Workshop quilt which can be sewn from a Jelly Roll.

2. If you haven’t already, sign up for our consumer newsletter using the box in the upper right-hand corner of our website. If you do that, you can come back and leave a second comment saying you’ve registered which will give you a second chance to win the prize. And if you already do subscribe to the newsletter, you can leave a comment saying that for a second chance to win.

We’ll pick the winner on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 15. Comments will close down and the winner’s name will be posted once the drawing is over. If you’re the lucky winner, we’ll contact you by email to get your shipping information.

And don’t forget that pillow talk continues! Tomorrow Sandy Gervais will be showing off her pillow at Pieces from My Heart.

Note: this post does not seem to be taking any more comments. We are addressing the issue. In the meantime, feel free to leave comments in the post above. We’ll do the drawing using both sets of comments.

    Greetings from Northern Saskatchewan CANADA! I have enjoyed reading our blog! I don’t like pillow fighting but does wacking the pillow on the bed to fluff it up count? Keep up the great job!

    I think I would like to have a pillow fight with my daughters. They are in grad school and college, respectively, and have a lot of stress in their courses of study. So, I think a good pillow fight would be a great stress reliever for them!! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    Thanks for sharing.

  39. I guess I would most like to have a pillow fight with my children.

  40. Susan

    A pillow fight opponent of choice would be my dear daughter. It would be a major accomplishment as she’s in southern Mississippi and I in Pennsylvania. She fights fair!

  41. I think there is a pillow fight every night at our house because our youngest, of 3, Weimaraners, runs up to our bed takes the small pillow in her mouth and tossed it around….YES – EVERY single night !! She has never put a hole in the darned pillow. And after she tosses the pillow in the air, she jumps in the air herself and turns circles.

    It’s just SO funny. Have to see it to believe it.

  42. I love your pillow … such a cute idea! I love having pillow fights with my grandchildren (until it gets too rough … lol!). Thanks for the chance to win the jelly roll of you new Modern Workshop fabric. I can’t wait to see it, so I’m jumping over to Moda and take a peek!

  43. Susan

    OK signed up! Thanks

  44. Julee

    I love your pillow. It shows so much about what you love about your life and your priorities. My daughter, who is 13, and I have a game we play with her webkins stuffed animals and no its not cute. We call it war! But sometimes it’s rough on this 51 year old soul. So I’d like to have a pillow fight with just me. While I punch it to death before I lay on it and snooze!

  55. Am I the first? WOW Loved your story and would love to win a jellyroll!! Thanks

  56. Julie

    That is one of the cutest pillows I have ever seen! If that became a pattern, I would definitely buy it! I would like to have a pillow fight with my husband. 🙂

  57. I would most love to have a pillow fight with my grandchildren. Since they are 4 1/2 and almost 3 I stand a chance to win (probably not) and they can’t really hurt me (can they?)! Besides I love them and they are soooo much fun! Love your pillow and your bear! Have a terrific Sunday.

  58. I signed up for your newsletter and I am looking forward to it.

  59. I would have a pillow fight with my youngest grandson who is just one. He is the only one I think would be easy enough on me and the pillows. I really like my down pillows and would hate to lose one! I have been reading your blog since the Pillow Talk began and gone back through it and really am enjoying it. Thanks for the giveaway. I love your pillow! I LOVE little girls’ dresses!

  60. Margaret

    I think I’d have a pillow fight with my 3 year old. The older kids are vicious pillow fighters. You almost need pillow armor to protect yourself when fighting them. 🙂

  61. I couldn’t get the subscribe button to work so I put you into my Google Reader. I am looking forward to following your blog regularly! What fun ideas you have! Thank you!

  62. I would have a pillow fight with my grandchildren!

  63. Karen A

    I would most like to have a pillow fight with my grandkids and their parents. It would be mayhem (5 kids with spouses) and 8 grandchildren, but I would have them all together at once and that would be LOADS OF FUN!

  64. Leah

    Hmmm, I guess I would most like to have a pillow fight with my family.

  65. Janice M

    I would most like to have a pillow fight with my daughters, which is silly because I would lose badly. The oldest has a black belt in Tae kwon do and the youngest is on her way there. The girls are so much fun to be around though.

  66. Leah

    I am subscribed! Thanks!

  67. Grandkids and pillows sounds like fun to me.
    I pillows like this for our boys highschool grad. from there first wrestling jacket. They liked them, at that age wasn’t real sure, by the 3 son grad he was waiting for his.
    Love all the pictures. Everyday events-cool.

  68. Janice M

    I signed up for the newletter. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Your pillow is so adorable! What a clever idea!! It would look so cute on a young girls bed. I would most like to have a pillow fight with my kids. It would be so much fun and the laughter would warm our hearts. Thanks for sharing about yourself and the giveaway.

  77. Nancy

    OH, your pillow is truly adorable! I loved your post, especially when you asked if a your hubby’s name being Todd counted as a night time toddy, LOL. Also think your ‘Teddy’ is just too precious. I am surrounded in my sewing room with little stuffed animals that my daughters and grand kids have given me over the years. Special treasures! I would most like to have a pillow fight with my two youngest grand kids, a girl 10 and a boy 9 and both adorable.*smile* Thanks so much for sharing some of yourself with us today and also for the giveaway. OH…and I think you should go ahead and keep the boxers for sleeping, after all, it about being comfy, right?

  78. Susanne

    My kids make the best pillow fight opponents, hands down! I’m just waiting for my puppet show tunic pattern to arrive (yay, I found one!), so maybe I’ll make a pillow out of it… after my Miss M grows out of it, of course 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  79. The pillow is so adorable! And perfect to reflect you! I had to chuckle at the big check you wrote. My job entails those type of numbers. I mistyped a check once, and my boss laughingly told me I was awfully cavalier with his zeroes!

  80. Nancy

    I have subscribed to your blogs mailing list. Thanks again!

  81. I love to pillow fight with my grandson who giggles so much it’s easy to beat him – but I let him win.

  151. Colette

    Just subscribed to your newsletter and looking forward to keeping up on your designs! Just love your look!! Thanks for your fun give away!

  152. Hi, Liesl! I have been a follower of yours since my daughter was wearing a size 6. I remember wishing that your patterns came in a larger size — and also sending you an email to ask if that would ever happen. My daughter will be 10 years old in March — so she is way too big for your patterns — but now you have fabric! 🙂 I can definitely deal with that! Pillow fighting was always too aggressive for me — so, how about if I just stay out of the way? Does that count? 🙂

  153. Deb A

    I can’t wait to have a pillow fight with my granddaughter when she gets older, since she’s only 6 months! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I don’t really pillow fight but if I had to I guess I would pick my big overgrown son who would probably ruin my pillow!!!

    Joining along on this blog hop has been so enjoyable. Reading about all the designers and how they started out. And your pillow is so cute and very “you”. I think I would like to have a pillow fight with all 7 of my grandchildren. That seems to be every gramma’s dream.

  205. Mary Jean

    Love your pillow !!! I would love to have a pillow fight with any one of my 15 grandchildren. I’m looking forward to seeing your new line of fabric or winning it would be wonderful.

  206. DianeY

    I’d probably pick my youngest grandson, Finn, because he’s the littlest. But he’d probably clobber me!

  212. Jennifer R.

    A new fabric line! Eeek!!! I’m so excited!!!
    Pillow fight…my (nearly) 4 year old daughter loves to “pillow bonk” which is more like pushing a pillow at someone than fight. It’s a great preschool version of what I’m certain will eventually develop into pillow fights with her younger sister.

  213. I would love to have a pillow fight with my children, but they would beat me hands down!

  214. Bethany

    I look forward to someday having kids to have pillow fights with! I just love how they get giggling and make everyone else laugh too!

    Oh, and my amazon pre-order of your book just shipped and should arrive at my doorstep early this week! I wanted a signed copy but I literally couldn’t wait so I might have to buy a signed one from you later. I’m hoping it arrives on Tuesday because the girls will be at the sitter all day Wednesday so I can sew. SO excited!

  217. Judy Blinkenerg

  219. Laurel W

    I would love to have a pillow fight with my sisters,we all live in different states. It is very rare that we are all together at the same time if we were a pillow fight would great fun. We would have to fit it in between all day or night sewing or fabric shopping. What fun it all would be.

  228. LeAnn H.

    I think I would most like to have a pillow fight with my husband. Or my dog if she was big enough. Yup, probably the dog. She’d enjoy it even more than I would! And we could just put my husband in the middle so he gets the brunt of the blows – tee hee!

  229. Kathie L

    I’d pick a pillot fight with my sister. We shared a bed for many years. Kathie L in Allentown

  246. Bea

    I think I would be most likely to have a pillow fight with my sister. We disagree with each other a lot but we’d never want to actually hurt one another which makes pillow fighting perfect.

  247. Susan S.

    I added my name to list at your website. I also looked at a few of the free patterns. My granddaughter will love the lazy day skirt. As a busy YaYa (I teach second grade), I appreciate easy!

    I love your pillow. Actually I really don’t want to have a pillow fight with anyone, two neck surgeries kind of put a stop to those kind of activities. I would rather quilt:)

  270. Rita Bright

    My choice of people to have a pillow fight with would be Tom Selleck, but I would need a time machine, so he and I could go back to the 80’s when we were both younger. Back then Tom was so popular and one day when I was at the gym and as I laid down on the bench to do some bench presses, I looked up and there was a big poster of Tom Selleck pinned to the ceiling. Wow, what an incentive to work out!!

  271. I’d love to have a pillow fight with my 6 year old son…what a cute pillow you designed for the blog hop.

  283. Alice S

    I adore your little pillow. Very sweet and a perfect descriptor for you.

    I used to do a lot of pillow fights at slumber parties as a little girl. Now, I’d rather skip and fight and just go for the slumber.

  284. Jeni

    Signed up! Looking forward to Modern Workshop!

  285. I love your pillow. I would have a pillow fight with my two boys and Jasper (our poodle). It would have to be the pillows with the feathers though.

    Whoops — forgot who I’d like a pillow fight with — that would be my seven grandkids. They’d probably completely overwhelm me but it’d be a lot of fun.

  304. Jane R

    I loe this idea of blog hopping as I get to visit and get to know alittle about each of you.I have saved a Polly Flander’s dress from my daughter {36} and I think I will make her dress into a pillow for her first daughter and my first grandchild.Great idea.

    Pillow fights are always fun with our puppy Ginger. She plays tug-of-war with her own stuffed toys. Then, at night, she tries to take over MY pillow, so I have to “fight” for my rights.

  343. Sue Bennett

    I love your pillow. We always had pillow fights growing up there were 8 of us. Feathers would be every where and Mom just a laughing. Thanks for being in the pillow blog hop.

  344. Sarah

    hmmm… I’ve been watching Season 1 of Glee, so I’d have to say that I’d choose Matthew Morrison to have a pillow fight with.

    Liesl, I’ve been following your blog for about a year (since I discovered your patterns when my sister made my daughter a Lazy Days Skirt). I’m already a subscriber to your newsletter, so there’s my 2nd entry, right? I guess to get my 1st entry I think I’d have most fun having a pillow fight with my 2 kids. I should probably let them win b/c they’re little. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your new fabric line, especially because of a possibility of laminated cottons?!?!?!

  353. laura huffman

    i love your quilt from a previous post. so perfect, colours are amazing.
    very cute pillow too.

  355. ellen

    I’ve often wondered who were Oliver + S. Now that you’ve introduced yourself, I’m very pleased to meet you. Your pillow gave me an idea! I have my daughter’s favorite dress which I made when she was not quite a year old and walking. Lots of ruffles to go with her ruffled big girl pantie. I’ve tried to incorporate it into a quilt; no lights bulbs flashed. Now, I’m going to make it into a pillow for her. What an excellent idea! Thank you!

  380. Ann Storlie

  397. Hi,
    I’m new to your blog but I’ve seen your fabric designs on the Moda website and they’re lovely. I also like your sewing tutorials and it’s been like a “refresher course” for me. After a 15 year hiatus I’m returning to sewing and quilting. I’ve taken many classes sewing with knits and for children.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m a lucky winner in your give-away too.

    Gail 🙂

  398. Oh, btw I forgot to add my pillow fight comment.

    I’d like to have a pillow fight with Keanu Reeves–but please don’t tell him, LOL.

  412. Becky

    Hello! Who would I most like to have a pillow fight with? My husband. I’m sure I owe him one — he’s the great-if-a-bit-wacky sense of humor one, and I’m always the (too) serious one!

    Thanks for the chance at a great give-away!

  413. Joyce

    Pillow fight? We’ll with all the Moda designers of course!

  437. Janelle J

    Cute pillow! I’d probably pillow fight with my husband and our 2 year old son. We do a lot of romping and wrestling anyway!
