I saw this on pinterest and I love it!
Do you drink lemonade? Do you add anything to it?

Over the weekend, I finished a pillow that I made for a flickr swap...
I adore this fabric- by a designer called Kate Spain, and it's called Good Fortune. So glad I have more of it- I want to make another pillow like this for myself! There is also binding on this pillow (the fabric "edge" around the pillow), which I'd never done before, and binding is still a bit of a challenge for me...those pesky corners! I was nervous, as I saw the profile and blog of the person I made this for, and she's really, really good! I hope she likes this.
I should have taken a photo of the back too, as I used some solid fabrics, but didn't.
Oh well! Next time for sure.

A few weeks ago, I was on pinterest, and saw a really cute Valentine mini quilt made by Erin. I pinned it and tweeted it, and then Erin replied and we had a conversation about its cuteness. When I saw it, it was just after Valentines Day, but I thought I might think about making one for the next holiday, St. Patricks Day.
I am pleased with it! I hung it on a short wall in the hallway (this photo was taken with it on the hardwood floor!), and I decided that this is the perfect spot for mini quilts. This one is just 16" x 16," and I think it took me about three hours total, give or take. I'm a slow sewer!
This was such a fun project, I really enjoyed it. Now maybe I will make one for Easter, and then something summery? A flag? We'll see!
Do you use mini quilts to decorate in your house?
