I would be remiss is I didn't mention my thanks to Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt for this and many other amazing ideas that keep these Blog Hops rolling, and to Pauline from Quilt n Queen, who is our hostess for the Holiday Lane Pillow Hop.
The adorable Holiday Lane pillow featured today was designed by Jill Finley of Jillily Studio, and the pattern is quick and easy to follow, and fun to make, even for a newbie like me. EVEN for a newbie like me who isn't always good at following instructions. Where I live, Christmas flies by, but winter seems to linger forever, so I decided that my pillow should be less Holiday and more Winter. I mostly used fabrics from my stash.
I used a shirt button for the door knob. The little snowman came from a piece of fabric given to me at a memorial service for one of our hospice patients, who was an avid (and very talented) quilter.
So I didn't scrap, or frog, or undo my first project, but since I wasn't thrilled with some of the puckery finish on my pillow, I decided to make a second, mini pillow using only felt applique.
