I've had an idea for a pillow like this for sometime now. And last month I was hopping around some creative sewing blogs, and I found a "pillow party" for bloggers over on Stitched in Color. You make a quilted pillow, blog about it and share. It was my motivation to get this pillow made - but guess what, the party ended last month. I really like how it turned out, and it is going to stay in my craft room. Maybe one day I'll make a quilted wall-hanging to match. Even though I missed the party, I'm happy to have found some much-needed inspiration and creative time.
