Time for some pillow action...
First of all! I have to say, "oh my gosh!" I have over 100 followers! How most exciting and I welcome each one of you!!!!
I finished 2 things yesterday. Mum's chair pad and the yellow vintage sheet quilt. Then I started the pillow project. I have this idea to make a pillow for several of my dear friends for Christmas. Each pillow will have to reflect that person in some way. First up is the Sunflower Pillow because this friend is a sunflower nut and she drooled a lot over Daughter's sunflower quilt. Here is a link to the quilt I made for Daughter last May. In a word, this pattern is Kitchen Window from Elizabeth Fransson's book Practical Guide to Patchwork. I had bits and pieces from Daughter's quilt so this was pretty easy to put together. I added an extra row of sunflower squares to make it more pillow sized. Looking snazzy!!! The squares are bordered with Kona Black sashing. Now it needs quilting and a back. I am now debating the thread colour for the quilting. What do you think? Yellow or black?
Please don't forget to enter my giveaway. You have until Thursday evening and as I said yesterday, I did find some more samples from this Christmas line from Basic Grey to throw in so it is an even better prize!!!
I am going to link up with Judy's Design Wall Monday because it is just so much fun to see what people are up to!
And I have said this before and I will say it again now! I am always so amazed at how much quicker a pillow goes together than a quilt! Have a lovely Monday!!!!
PS. Stray Stitches has a great giveaway and she is always so good about talking about my giveaways and has sent lots of people my way so check it out!!!
