Pillow progress

Pin It

I began the quilting last night.  Even though I should have been working on something else (Come back this Wednesday).

I'm having too much fun with these pillows.

I used the template from this pattern (Mod Medallions by Gigi 's Thimble), and then modified it a bit.

These fabrics were completely not something I'd normally choose (and a few of them were new additions), but I am thrilled with how it is turning out.  This pillow will be hard to part with... but part with it I will, as it was so personalized for its recipient.

My favorite block is that corner one with the Hope Valley and Woodland Bloom.


Steiger likes it too.

The tree is my other favorite block.  
And the center one.
And those Freebird eggs on Hope Valley.

That pillow makes me want to take up quilting! It is beautiful. I love how the last picture has your little one off to the side, makes the quilt look even more lovely.;)
