Fall Pillow

Can you feel fall in the air like I can?  This is the LAST week of August you know.  The summer went too fast, but I sure love fall so I guess its a good trade.  This pillow was made from some fall inspired fabrics with a pattern from  Stitch magazine.  Now its time to make a cute table runner to match.  Last year about this time I made this table runner.  It was the second thing I ever quilted myself and I was amazed it actually worked.  Sewing and I were NOT friends before last fall…but more on that later.  I have the most massive pile of laundry on my bed to fold and you can not even imagine how excited to be the lucky folder.  Sigh.

    LLLLOVE the fabrics!! Are they all from the same designer, or is the grouping YOUR genius eye's doing??

    ….Methinks I spy an Amy Butler print……?

    You're going to hate me but I like anything laundry related… it's a sickness, I know.

    I'm looking forward to fall too, I just love the colours and the crisp nip in the air! This pillow is definitely a fall cache of those colours.

    Yours is way prettier. The big button is my favorite! It's the added touch that makes the pillow special. The brown with white dots was an excellent choice too. I wish I had your sense of colors…sigh.
    Can't wait to see the table runner…maybe a lap quilt to go with the pillow (?).
