As much as I like my job, there is just something so decadent and exciting about a snow day! Imagine, staying home from work on a Tuesday afternoon - what joy! It was a perfect time to finish working on a little project I had started on the weekend.
A couple years ago, I picked up a fun holiday print in an after-Christmas sale at Fat Quarter Shop and all along, I knew I wanted to use it to make pillowcases for my bed. It only took me three years, but I got them made last weekend. After that, I thought it would be fun to make a pillow to go with them. I foraged around in my scrap bins until I had a bunch of neutrals and some colourful scraps to go nicely with my pillowcase focus print. I followed Toni's directions to make Skinny Churn Dash blocks and they turned out so cute! I did some straight line quilting across the top, added a quilted envelope closure for the back and in short order, my new pillow was done. Here it is, nestled against the pillowcases I took my inspiration from.
