Project Quilting Season 8-4 brighter the better

First is a big Thank You to Studio Cherie!  She gave every person who participated in the third challenge a free downloadable pattern!  So awesome!  I haven't had a chance to make mine yet but I plan to very soon.  Thank you!

The theme this week for Project Quilting is brighter the better.  What is brighter than Cherrywood Fabrics, right!  I had a few bits left from another project and they seemed perfect to make a bright springtime pillow.  I already had a pattern.  I found it on Maudie's Cottage Design (I think it was through Craftsy, not positive) but here is a link to her webpage.

I added my little spinning triangles by appliqueing them to the pillow front which I think makes me eligible for the challenge.  I didn't actually do any quilting this week!!!  (Hey, I have a nasty cold, cut me some slack) I fused them and stitched around the edges.

Almost every year for my birthday we go hang out in antique shops.  Not everything in the shops is antique but I love browsing through all the memory inducing items.  Usually I end up with a tiny bag of odd scraps of fabric or buttons.  I bought this bag of buttons on one of those trips, no they were not $35.  I think they were maybe $3.  The bright colored button was the reason I bought this bag.  I had no idea what I would use it for but I knew someday it would speak to me.  It was screaming at me for this project.

I had everything I needed for this project except the zipper.  Yes there is a zipper in the back.  I love the rainbow colored rickrack on the edge too.

It is just a small decorative pillow, 12" x 16" but it is brightening up my house and putting me in the mood for spring!
Have a Creative Day
