Family Pillow

We posted the “Celebrate Your Family” wall hanging pattern last week and received so many positive responses!  Thank you!

I made a practice panel before I published the pattern.  As I finished working on my “Family” practice panel, I realized I needed to tweak a few things for the final pattern.  What to do with the practice panel?  I decided to make a pillow!

I had about a 1/2 yard of black and white print in my stash which was just the right amount to make a 4 inch outer border.  I like how the pink tones really pop with the solid black inner border.

I quilted the front of the pillow with straight line stitches and finished it with an envelope back.  I had to make my own pillow form because the pillow cover is longer than a standard pillow form.

I’m going to drop this in the mail to mom tomorrow.  I think she might use it as a throw pillow on her bed as it matches her pink, black and white lonestar quilt.  I can’t wait to hear what she thinks of her family pillow!
