Description

For this month's pillow I used some charms from a Happy Go Lucky Charm pack by bonnie & camille, and added a few other favourite fabrics for variation, including Sun Print Text by Alison Glass, and the happy butterflies.  For the border I used Light Blue Wickerweave by Renee Nanneman of Need'l Love, which has a linen look to it. I really like the soft blue tone, and so decided to use it on the back as well.  I quilted it as in the book with the additional plus design, and although it came out okay, I do find all that straight line quilting difficult. There always seems to be a few wonky places. 

It was a push to make it this month as lots going on, but so pleased I did.

Oh love it...I am not going to make deadline this month but this pillow makes me want to make this pattern at some point!

Caribousmom

This is awesome...I really, really love it. That Wickerweave is perfect for this pillow (I need to check out that fabric - love the texture it brings to your pillow)...and of course, anything Bonnie and Camille is in my wheelhouse! Great job!

Beautiful platform for Happy Go Lucky! And I agree with Wendy, that blue linen-like is to die for.I must get me some fast! I think this pillow is calling out for a quilt.....

Wonderful fabric choices- you rocked this!

Terryt1955 I love the blue fabric, and am planning to get some more. I was thinking of using it in our bedroom when we redecorate it. Then I would have to make a quilt with it! Yea!
