Description

Yay! I finished just in time!

I made "Lavender Metro" to coordinate with my "Lavender Lover's Knot" quilt (Eleanor Burns pattern) that I pieced in 1986, had quilted in 1999, and finally started using on my bed about 4 years ago. I've always wanted some pillows to accent the quilt, and when my sister (sewhappy) asked me to join the Pillow Pop Sew Along, I thought it the perfect opportunity to make a pillow (or two, or three... :)

Thanks cally68! I like the way you mixed purple with black on your pillow, now you've inspired me to incorporate more color in my Lavender Chevron pillow!

I'm a big fan of purple and grays together so of course love what you did here. And what a beautiful quilt too!

I love how you incorporated some of the fabric from your quilt into the cushion! Pulls all the other fabrics together nicely.
