Pillow {talk} Swap–Sent & Received

The perfect pillow from Darci @ Stitches & Scissors

Today is the shipping deadline for the flickr based Pillow Talk {Swap}, so naturally, I’m headed to the post office after Little Tiny’s nap. I have admired so many of the pillows that have come from this swap over the last few rounds, I had to jump in at the last minute.

A few weeks ago, I received the world’s most awesome pillow from Darci at Stitches & Scissors. Seriously, it makes me happy every single time I walk by my couch. Darci’s pillow must have subconsciously influenced the palette for the pillow I made, which I didn’t realize until I put the two side by side.

As soon as I got my partner assignment, I knew I wanted to use some of the itty bits of Heather Ross novelty fabric I have.  But that was it. I sketched out about ten options over the last few weeks, and finally decided on the same pattern as my Garden Windows quilt.

Here is the pillow. I hope she likes it!

Linked up at these two places!  Happy sewing, everyone! I was up, ahem, a bit late finishing this one, so I’m hoping Little Tiny is getting very sleepy very soon. Nap time for everyone!

    Both are so pretty! I love that you selected fabric based on a theme for the pillow you made.

    Your “sent” and “received” are both awesome!! Love the little fussy cut squares on the one that you made. And seriously, the goldfish in the bag print…..adorable.
