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!!!
