Pillow to match Redwood quilt

Here is a pillow made out of Redwood fabrics that matches my Redwood quilt. It is 18"x18" square. I hadn't done a ruffle in a long, long time and forgot what a struggle they are-----------I even did it the way I find easy------------zig-zag a heavy thread (like perle cotton) to a little above the 1/4th" line and then pull that heavy thread to gather the ruffle, but it still was hard to do, but I'm happy (mostly) with the way it turned out!

Another beautiful day here in the neighborhood! Maybe Spring is finally here-lots of flowers in bloom which makes my heart happy! There were some wildflowers in bloom along the roadsides as we drove to Tyler (about 40 miles away) for another Quilt Show. It was fun to see the quilts and shop the venders. I got several bargains with $1.00 and $1.50 fat quarters for Project Linus Yellow Brick Road quilts. I'll be working on them on Friday at our DFW Gang Sit and Sew! We have such a good time when we get together!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Gorgeous pillow, I can't remember the last time I did a ruffle. They are a bit of a hassle.
