Finished Pillow and a Sneak Peek

I've joined a potholder swap for the month of February.  We chose our theme and then we were assigned secret partners.  I love the surprise.  Here is a little peek of what I'm working on for my partner.
I will have a tute and pattern on my blog soon so you can make a pear to go with your apple!
I can't wait to get my new potholders.  The ones I use right now are so gross.  Really, they are awful.  I'll post a pic when I get my new ones!!

I also made the Cozy Cottage in to a pillow!
You can find the pattern for the paper pieced cottage in the newest issue of Fat Quarterly, Here.

Happy Monday!

  5. I love the house pillow and have pinned it to my "Quilty Goodness" board on Pinterest (with proper credit, of course!). Feel free to follow me if you'd like: http://pinterest.com/lipglass/quilty-goodness/ For a bee I'm in this month I've requested houses/trees of any variety and I've directed people here to check out your stunning example! :)
