Boy, did I hit the jackpot on this swap! This is what my partner, Pam (Sewmama123), made for me. She even sent a second little pillow along with it! I wrote on my sign-up form that I was planning to put pillows along a really long window seat in my sunroom and that my colors in there were gray and yellow but that it didn’t have to match since I’m mixing all sorts of pillows there.
Still, the colors she chose match quite well. She also used one of my favorite fabric lines, Flea Market Fancy (the yellow bouquet print on the back is a fabric from that line).
Her hand stitching work is just amazing. I think that’s my favorite part. It’s just gorgeous, and it’s even better in person. I’m a real sucker for hand quilting and hand stitches—they just add a really special touch, I think.
The backs are almost as pretty as the front. She sewed in a covered zipper behind the gray print. I really love the leaves in the gray. If it’s still for sale somewhere, I might have to track some down to buy for my stash.
I had heard before that this was a really great swap group, and there’s nothing in the group photo pool that I wouldn’t be happy to have. However, this was one of my favorites along the way, and the little pillow is just so adorable! My bench doesn’t actually have a cushion cover yet, but I’m getting there, and as soon as it does, I’ll be posting a picture with my pillow lineup!
