This week I've been doing something a little bit different. Awhile back I saw the cutest little red ticking star shaped pillow in a pricey home decor store. I was really tempted to get it for my little boy's room but my friend who I was with said, "no, you could make that easy." so i passed and its been in my mind ever since. so this week i bought some blue striped ticking and have starts pillow making. the star one is still unmade but i'm pretty happy with how this other one went together. this is essentially a quilt block with piping and a back with an opening in the middle (to insert pillow form). second time around i would make it to fit a little more snugly. very potterybarn-ish i think. and i like pottery barn. i made it for my little boy's room but i think it may just stay in our family room for awhile. he can enjoy it here too. :) this was a fun project to start and complete in a few hours. once i get a better hang of this technology stuff i'll put a pattern for this pillow on here.
