Pillow Party

Blogger's Pillow Party

This is the last month of the blogger's pillow party,
and I almost missed the deadline!

I finished up this string quilt pillow for Holly's bed this week.
The fabrics are from Amy Butler's Ginger Bliss fabric line, and coordinate with the quilt on her bed and also my Sliced Coins Quilt that I made earlier this year.

This pillow is reversible!
Made from leftover scraps (inspired by a similar tree pillow here),
I did FMQ in the purple background, then
finished it with an invisible zipper.  
I think I love both sides equally!

Cozy bedtime reading spot in Holly's room

This is Holly's explanation of the Pillow Party --
 she brought this home from kindergarten one day!
"My mom is working on a pillow contest.  Maybe you do not know what a pillow contest is, well a pillow contest is when moms get together and have a pillow party."
Sounds like fun, huh?
