Susie's scrappy girls pillow

I made this 20" pillow for Susie before we went to visit her and David a month ago. She loves it. She says she hugs it a lot.

Susie gave me the girl fabrics: matryoshka dolls, silhouettes in the wind, talking girls with birds.

I will be making three of these for Christmas gifts in the next couple of weeks, but smaller: 16".

I pieced the back with some of the fabrics Susie has given me: matryoshka dolls, bees and flamingoes.

  1. Totally, completely, perfectly, amazingly enchanting. I think this might be one of my favorites!

  2. So many sweet fabrics! It is definitely huggable!

  3. I tried leaving a comment on my iPad, Ruth, while we were gone on our wee trip but I had to jump through hoops for my Google account and decided to wait till we got home...which happened less than an hour ago. HA!

    Anyway, I totally ditto the above comments. Your creativity with these projects is just lovely in every way! Keep doing what you're doing!

  4. Adorable!! Love the fabrics and can so see why it would be so huggable!!

  5. Love, love the pillow! The fabric with the little girls gives it an old-fashioned look and the way you placed the pieces is just so sweet. I can well understand it is a pillow one can embrace.
