Sometimes inspiration just hits you when you are looking at a quilting blog. I ran across this pillow design on Jill Finley's web-site, Jillily Studio She was offering it as a down-load or you could order a kit with the pattern from her. I opted for the kit......love those fabric choices that are already made for me. The pillow seemed just the perfect colors for a holiday pillow for my darling DILs living room. The fabric came and mellowed for awhile on my desk. Then last week on Friday, I decided to begin. It's now Sunday night and it is finished. I am totally loving it. I was going to maybe give it to DDIL for Christmas but I couldn't wait. She has seen it and she loves it and by tomorrow afternoon, it will be sitting on her window seat. I really need to make one for myself but I'll probably use a little bit different colorway. Thanks Jill for the pattern and the gorgeous fabrics that made the perfect pillow for the holidays.
|The project begins...not too difficult to make houses|
|Humble little houses all in a row.|
|A little snow on the rooftops, windows, and trees for details|
|Add a strip for a flange and some embroidery for the windows and wreath|
|Wreath for the door designed by me|
|Looking quite cute but it is not yet "fluffy"|
|Pillow Perfection! Just right for the darling DILs decor|
