I started this pillow cover from a scrap bag I got at my local quilt shop... in fall of 2012. I didn't have a pattern and I just sort of did some math and threw it all together. I would have done several things differently, and I did do those different things in the second pillow I started at the same time and have yet to finish. My deadline for these two projects is March 12. This pillow is a gift for my grandmother and the second one, which you've seen bits of already, is for my cousin, Natalie. Grandma is coming to visit on March 12 and I'd like to send them both home with her then. So glad to have this done, and in combination with the quilt finish from two weeks ago, I'm moving right along my WIP list!

I am going to wash it and give it a light starching, trying to get some of the original creases out of the fabric. I also hope to take a better picture of it, maybe the sun will shine when Grandma is here. She believes that pictures should be made with people and their things.

More snow flurries this morning. I said all those things about not wanting spring then I found myself feeling quite the opposite when I saw a bit of golf on the TV. The sunshine and green grass looked awfully nice, but isn't that the way it always is? We are so content until the world tells us there is something else.


  1. It's so pretty. I wish I could sew! Well - I guess I probably could but I don't have the patience for it and enjoy knitting and spinning so much.

  2. Love it. The spring/world/contentness thought and the pillow.

  3. very very pretty! Love the soft colors in the fabrics :)
