Just One Little Pillow

I did get several things sewn in the time I was signed-off the blog for the holidays.  This little pillow is for my son Eli and was a Christmas gift.  It is a travel or crib-size pillow.  We have several pillows like this at the house and they are a real nice size as an extra cuddle pillow.
The 'E' was from a block I had made as a trial when I made his Eli's Log Castle quilt.  Having that already done meant that the whole pillow went together super quick.  The bright yellow fabric matches the walls in his room.  The pillow has a quilted front -- a very simple pointy stipple in the middle section and then some straight lines near the seams.
I used this jazzy Dr. Seuss fabric for the back.  (The way it's sitting makes it look like a poor fit, but it is actually finished nice and straight)  I made a pillow for my daughter too that I will post once I can get a pic of it.
Happy Quilting!  Posted by Riel Nason on The Q and the U

I just bought two pillow forms this week in anticipation of making some pillows, one for a little guy named Eli, coincidentally. Yours is great!

I love this initial pillow idea--my Mom (in the Nursing Home) would love it! She really likes bright cheery colors--I will definitely plan to do one for her. Julierose
