I Made a Pillow
I finished up this pillow today and I am pretty pleased with it. It is my first my project with hexies. I followed the instructions to make the pillow top and hexies from Love Quilting and Patchwork magazine. I really wanted to do an envelope enclosure so I followed the tutorial at Fussy Cut. If I don't count some really simple really bad pillows I made when I was first leaning to sew many years ago (and I don't count those) then this is my first pillow. It was so quick and easy that I want to make more pillows. I plan to start saving my Joann's coupons for pillow forms.
At the start of the year I signed up for a homemade pay it forward on Facebook. I have three people to make gifts for. This one is for my Aunt Karen. I was going to make pillows for the other two gifts but I am considering doing the Patchwork Please Zakka along 2.0 This would be my first sew along anything. The book is due to arrive soon and I can't wait. So if I go for it, I am thinking some of the projects I make from the book can be the other gifts. I have a baby quilt I need to make by June 30 and I think the book quilt from Patchwork Please would be adorable.
For the first time I will be linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
