Happy Post Day

Today this fabulous pillow arrived in my mailbox, all the way from Canada, a gift from my long term quiltblogland friend, Krista Poppyprint.  I had spied it on her blog a couple of weeks ago and dropped some pretty heavy hints that it was just my kind of thing and hey presto!  Dresden in the middle, geese flying around the outside and cornerstones.  Brights and Kona pepper.  Just my cup of tea.
If you would like to make yourself one of these, Krista has just released the pattern for the pillow and you can find it over at her blog here.  If you have a charm pack lying around and fancy a quick and easy project, this is just for you.  I'm thinking of making one from those new Oakshott rubies, or maybe from those grey fabrics I bought the other day, or maybe from some Mama Said Sew (if I had some).  Or I might make a Christmas pillow from Winterkist when I manage to get my hands on some.  Or wouldn't this be cool in Summersville?  Or in Konas ... ooh I have some Kona charm packs ... off to rummage...

  2. I love it. What a great friend she is. Dresden is on my list of things to tackle along with paper piecing this years.

  3. yes, I believe I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT, followed by I WANT IT, I WANT IT, I WANT IT did the trick. It doesn't go with a single thing in my house, so I'm very happy the pillow has found a comfy home. Enjoy Lynne (preferably with a fruity drink topped by umbrella in hand).

  6. Ask and ye shall receive? Or is it in fact, beg embarrassingly and she'll give in? ;o) It's fab though, I can see why you went there!
