WIP: A Pillow for E {April ALYOF Goal}

Sorry for the poor lighting! I put together this block from scraps from the birthday dress that I made for E (her birthday is this month!) The colors match her bedroom really well, so I just had to use the scraps to make a scrappy pillow! 

My goal is to add an outer border, do a little quilting and then sew an envelope backing before throwing it on E's already full bed. Should be fun!


Current WIP List...

  • 1 pillow top needing a border then quilting and then needing a back (current post)

Current UFO List...
  • Twin size quilt top needing a border then quilting and binding
  • A quilt top from my grandma needing quilting and binding
  • 1 lap quilt needing quilting then binding 
  • 6 baby quilt tops needing quilting and binding 


  1. What a great memento of the birthday, and a great way to use up those scraps. She'll have the pillow to keep, even after she outgrows the dress.

  2. Cute pillow - the colors are fun! You can never have too many, in my opinion...

  3. Cute pillow and she will maybe even remember the dresses later on when she has already outgrown them.

  4. how great that you used scraps from her dress! that'll make it more meaningful. happy birthday to her. =)
