A couple of years ago Linda asked me if I would make some quilts as Christmas Gifts for her family. Linda made it easy. She paid me half up front, gave me creative freedom and trusted me to make quilts her family would like.
This year Linda asked me if I would make her six pillows for Christmas gifts. I didn’t hesitate to say yes. Linda and I have since become online friends. She sends me art cards in the mail and we keep in touch.
Making the pillows for Linda is the perfect way for me to get back into my work after the Open House. I started making the first pillow late Friday afternoon and continued today,( in between mad donkeys, flat tires and visiting The Mansion.)
I finished designing two pillows today and began a third. I still have to back and stuff them. But I was so into designing them, I didn’t want to stop.
The pillows are about 20″x20″ plus a 3 or 4 inch edging. I’m making them all with the fabric scraps that were sent to me by quilt designer Kenna Ogg.
