For my baby girl and her fella

When I visited my daughter a few weeks ago one thing she wanted for her new home were pillows for the living room.  

For Christmas I made her one from a craftsy quilt pattern I purchased last year, mini size.  I loved the pattern as soon as I saw it, baby girls only request was bright colors - mission accomplished!

I made it envelope style and am now looking for two patterns for her everyday pillows.  She loves Johnathan Adler style pillows, large prints.

from his website~


I will be on the lookout for a compatible pattern quilt style.

  4. Lovely tree! So bright and cheery!
    The last pillow you could copy by making triangles build up of strings. Than lay out the triangles together into the hexagons. sew rows of triangles together.
    Good luck!
