A gift idea....

I took a break from the tiny Sylvias and Farmers' Wife blocks, and made two nice big 12 inch blocks from stash, and a pattern from http://www.quilterscache.com/. Then I snagged two pillow forms from Joann's with a 25% off coupon.... *Yay!*

The result:










A bit of spring time color for my Mom who has a birthday next week!




















And I think I'm going to make another set for perhaps Mother's Day, that is patriotic red/white/blue in another quilt block pattern.... She can unbutton the springy ones and button on some new ones for Flag Day and Fourth of July. A set in fall colors would be a nice surprise in September. And obviously she could use a set in Christmas fabrics in December. And I think I will double the whole idea, cos I want a set too!


Today, it's back to my regular challenge: Making progress on Farmers' Wife blocks. I'm 75% done with "Birds in the Air".















More pix later!
