A Pillow for Grandma
First, a few notes about my Grandma.
*I won't reveal her age here, but she's a great-grandma to my two little kids, and she just babysat my 1 1/2 year old for three nights! Yes, she is very spry and ambitious. I got lucky!
*She has packed our lives with wonderful memories, because she spoiled each of us silly! (and still does)
*She is a wonderful cook. Likes all shades of purple mauve and burgundy. Does NOT like yellow! She's very ticklish. That was one of the only rules I remember from her. If I tried to tickle her under the arms, she'd turn 'no-nonsense' pretty quick!
Now a few notes about the pillow.
*This was my Christmas gift for Grandma.
*I realized I had more purples in my stash than I thought. It helped that I just won that FQ bundle of Innocent Crush!
*I used Essex Linen in Sand for the background and back.
*Used a purple invisible zipper, and hand quilted with perle cotton.
*Here's the tutorial for the Dresden Plate.
And it just so happens that Rachel of Stitched In Color is having a Blogger's Pillow Party, so I'm entering this pillow in the contest.
