Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Pillow Talk!!

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday again!  It seems like a long time since we last got our whoop whoop on - I hope you're ready to do it again!  Let's get started!

So hee's what I'm whooping about this week - a finally finished graduation present for a friend!!

Her mom told me that she would be decorating her 
dorm room in navy and coral.

I remembered that great navy and coral floral print
that was tucked away in my stash somewhere.

It took some time to find it!

But I think it was worth it!!

The front of the pillow is a Swoon block, with the center star fussy cut from the floral fabric.

The quilting is straight line in the star and points, 14 inch in from each straight edge.  The straight lines in the center star cross and form a diamond in the center.  The background pieces are quilted with a medium stipple to make the star points stand out.

The back of the pillow is made using a simple envelope closure.

And that's what I'm whooping about this week!!


And now it's your turn! 

What has made you dance the happy dance this week?

Show us what you've been working on - 

We want to dance too!!

Remember it doesn't have to be a finish - 
Just what you're excited to have accomplished!

The linky party will close Sunday night at midnight -

Be there or be square!!

  2. LOVE the cushion. I'm happy to give it a home if she's not fainting from delight at receiving it!

    I suspect I'll be out of luck though, right?!

  3. Love the pillow! The colors & fabrics are great! I really like that you didn't use the center star fabric for the outer "parallelogram" shape! It really adds a lot having that be a different fabric! (Wish I would have thought of it!) Thanks for hosting!
