How about a last minute entry for the Emerald Challenge?
Yet again, I used the Diamond Pillow Pattern (click here for pattern) created by Amanda Jean Nyberg. I love this design! This time around, I simply chose a selection of greens to piece together with an emerald green corduroy background,
added a bunny applique
complete with a sweet vintage button for his tail
to make a Spring pillow (it finishes at 20" square).
The quilting is simple scallops on the patchwork squares and circles for each of the four corners. Two favourite Denyse Schmidt prints were used to complete the binding and the pillow back. Lots of green yumminess!
I love it when a last-minute idea comes together successfully (even if it means cutting things close to the deadline ;o).
There's a link party/gallery, hosted HERE - so hop on over to see all the beautiful Emerald Challenge creations.
You can also find everyone participating HERE on the Flickr group.
Here's hoping all our green creations will encourage some Spring weather... bringing an end to all the snow we keep receiving. ;o)
