I used scraps of the white on white Bubbles from my Beautiful Blossoms quilt and a pretty dark blue with lighter blue branches and flowers on it. It's hard to photograph, but hopefully you'll be able to see!
This is made in four identical pieces, and then they are connected with the white sashing to create a snowflake shape. I had to laugh the first time I got everything sewn together, because I forgot to look back at the tutorial, and ended up with this -
It looked kind of neat, but was definitely not what I had planned! So, out came the seam ripper, and after I got everything put back together correctly, I added some batting and quilted away.
Since I knew I wanted to make a pillow out of this block, I pulled a fun swirly blue and white fabric from my stash which I thought was perfect for the back -
I made an envelope backing for the pillow and stuffed in an 18 inch pillow form to finish everything off!
Next Thursday is our get together, and it will be fun to see who ends up with my pillow! I definitely enjoyed making it, and aren't those the best gifts to give?!
Linking up in all my favorite places -
Oh Scrap! on Sunday
See you there!
