Pillow Swap

Last night was our pillow swap at The Quilt Asylum. What fun! So many cute pillows, and, you guessed it, once again I forgot my camera! Joellen took pictures of all the pillows and I will link to her post here when she puts them up on her blog. There were also pics taken of all of us together with our pillows. I will share one here when they are available. You might remember several months ago, I received a pincushion in the swap from Emily. It was a sweet little birthday cake which was perfect because I had just celebrated my big birthday. Well, guess whose pillow I received last night? Emily's! It's like she made it just for me. Check out these colors... I love her piecing. She called it "Wonky Spools" So cute! And this great stripe on the back...
Look how pretty it looks in my sewing room!
The next swap (due in June) is a summertime tablerunner. After last night's swap, Emily said to me jokingly "well, what fabrics do you want me to use for your tablerunner?" LOL I would be happy to receive a swap from her every single time! I am already tossing ideas around in my head for the tablerunner I will make. Don't worry, you'll get a sneak peek when it's done!

How pretty!! I love how the center "diamond" floats when you really look it. Great addition to your sewing room for sure!

I'm so glad to see you are enjoying the pillow I made! It looks great in your sewing room and matches your quilt perfectly! I created a blog and posted the baby quilt that the scraps for your pillow originated from!
