Started and Finished...

I needed to make another gift for my Godmother/Aunt Bev.  Why? Because her birthday is June 1.  Apparently, I am unable to think more than two weeks in advance!  This, though, was a quick and easy make a little pillow to match the quilt I made for her for Mother's Day...see the quilt here.  

Here's what I did.  I made a 32 patch measuring 8 x 16 with 2 1/2 inch squares.  I didn't use batting, but I did do some topstitching.  I lined the front with a piece of Kona cotton (so the raw edges would be protected) and backed the pillow cover with a small floral print. I made an envelope closure at the end of the pillow.  And, I even made my own pillow insert!  

Here's a photo of Godmother/Aunt Bev from today...enjoying the sunshine in Eau Claire.

That is a beautiful quilt and the pillow is the perfect gift to go with it.
