Description

I started off making the May Pillow for the Pillow Pop group...but did not like it. Now I LOVE Wendy's but mine was just not making me happy so off I went in another direction, but I did want to use the circles I had cut out so far. I did not use much fabric (except for white) so figured worse that would happen is I would toss it. My goal was a pillow to go with my "Take Breath Away" quilt for my niece. So I wanted something different and somewhat modern. Just finished FMQing top and need to add some quilting to border and then do back. 5-18-14 done

VERY pretty!!! I'm sure this is going to be a big hit with your niece. And look at you going all "off-grid" you creative little minx you!! You are definitely getting the FMQ down!!

HawkFan

I love your adaptation to it and the FMQ adds so much to it. She'll love it!

Caribousmom

Wow! Beautiful!

True

cally68 Capetowngirl Caribousmom HawkFan Terryt1955 thank you all... Guess a good reminder that even though we do not always get where we think we wanted to go it does not mean where we end up is not good;-)

True

Carolmarie thank you! And I do love when something "comes" and saves the day!;-)

danadane

So pretty! I especially like the color combinations.

True

danadane thanks so much:-)

Skynme

Sorry I missed this post originally, love the beautiful fabrics. I like that you minimalized the blossom on this, I think the one in the book is just too much.

True

Skynme thank you so much...I agree about one in book...I had wanted to do more but just could not figure out a way I liked it. Just finished the top and I am glad I stopped where I did!!

Conniharns

This is so pretty...very nice. I love this. Quilting is wonderful.

ArloDeanQuilts

Very pretty in pink. Really like your version.

True

ArloDeanQuilts Conniharns thank you both!

Gardencrafter

I really like your take on this pillow...very simplistic. Very pretty!

brodeusebressane

Love it ! May have to steal this idea..... ;-)

True

Gardencrafter thank you so much!

True

brodeusebressane thank you and steal away!!

Terryt1955

So So pretty!!! And the back is equally pretty. That lower tree fabric is SO cute!!!! When will you be mailing this off?

True

Terryt1955 I will send this home with my mom when she is here for my nephew's graduation in June and then give it to my niece when I am in Michigan in July. And thank you...if I had been making this for someone else would have used the tree fabric as a larger part of quilt and pillow but since it was not one of main colors she chose used it as a secondary fabric. But love it!

Conniharns

True This pillow came out so beautiful. Just love it and that fabric on the back is great. What a wonderful gift....she is bound to love it...who wouldn't?!!

True

Carolmarie Conniharns thank you both!!

Terryt1955

Who makes the tree fabric? Would make a darling backing for a baby quilt too!

True

Terryt1955 it is part of collection from quilt so Pretty Little Things... Hawthorne Fabrics has it

True

Terryt1955 it comes with a white background as well as the bile...and it would be perfect for the backing of a baby quilt!

Terryt1955

I have 2 weeks to wait before I find out the sex of the baby of a good friend of my daughter's and I'm hoping it's a girl so I can use this cute fabric! Sooo cute!!

Gail

adorable!
