This might be my favorite pillow yet. Individually, each part of it is very simple. The applique is not a big intricate piece, but rather plain and simple. The borders are just that, borders, no fancy piecing involved. Put them all together though, and you have one gorgeous pillow! The purple inner border is from Amy Butler's latest line, Soul Blossoms, and the blue/gray outer border is from one of my all time favorite fabric lines - Valorie Wells's Olive Rose. I use a piece of Olive Rose in almost everything I make!
This post is earlier than usual today. I have been doing my posts late at night, mainly because that's when everybody in this house is asleep and I have some time to sew without interruption. But this afternoon the sun has been shining in the front window and the living room is bathed in it's warm rays. I just couldn't resist making the pillow insert and taking my photos with the sun streaming in!
