Love-ly Pillow

From Millan.NetI'm in trouble!!! I have been making a LOT of Valentine-y types of projects, and i only have a few more days in which to post photos of them!! AND with Artisan Wednesday Wow coming on, well, Wednesday ... sit back and fasten your seatbelts!!

I had SOOO much fun making this pillow ... it's approximately 19"x19" ... it took me a LOT longer than I had planned when I started, but it makes me pretty happy!!

And, despite the fact that I was trying to talk myself OUT of doing any sewing by hand, I sewed 16 buttons and 8 ribbons on to the front of this baby after I had done the machine quilting. Sometimes I should just quit fighting the ideas that pop into my head and just roll with 'em!!

Paper: Pool Party
Accessories: More Amore Designer Fabric, Hearts a Flutter Framlelits Dies, Real Red ¼” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Bitty Buttons (Circles), Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (Circle), Red Fabric, White Fabric, Dacron (for quilted top and pillow), Heat & Bond Iron-On Adhesive, Sewing Machine, Thread
