My brother's birthday was last week. So when I started thinking of gift ideas, I asked Addy if she'd like to make him a pillow. I happened to have an extra charm pack of Pure, which is perfect for a guy!
She chose her favorite charm squares and we sewed the top in a simple 9-patch:
Addy really loves giving her handmade gifts, and my brother loved the colors! Maybe we will use up the rest of that charm pack making him a few more pillows to coordinate. :)
Happy (slightly late now) birthday, Robbie!
PS Over the next few weeks we will be traveling about and settling down in Seattle (which is also why I've been extra quiet around here recently). After we settle down, I have TWO new quilts to share! I love them both, which is making it very hard to gift them. :)
