scrappy pillows

I recently made these 2 pillows for my boys to go with those quilts that I am going to finish one day, I swear. My son asked me where is that big blanket thing with all the pictures on it!?
But I had such a pile of cute scraps from their quilts, I made one in a wonky log cabin block that is 18" square and got some more practice with my walking foot making a grid pattern on it. The second pillow is 12x16" and is simply irregular strips pieced together. Then I free motion quilted that one.

I also got a sweet note today on flickr from Dee over on her blog: Creative Perch. She featured my Heather Ross smocked sundress on her blog for her flickr Fridays post. I love that idea as I have become enamoured with flickr over the last few months. Amazing talent. I may have to copy the Flickr Friday idea!
We are wrapping a week of nature camp today. My oldest went to his first camp out without us. I hardly slept last night, worrying and missing him too much. I am off to pick them up soon and then pack, pack, pack for a fun week at the beach!
See you when I get back! Hope you have a great week!
