LAMQG Anniversary Swap - for Latifah
Latifah specified that she wanted a pillow for her couch. She gave me a bunch of scraps left over from the workshop we took from Sherry Lynn Wood this summer and I had a great time making this for her. The hand quilting was a final addition that I'm so glad I did.
The funniest part about making it was that I made the quilted part first and then realized that no pillow was the exact size that I had made so I had to make my own pillow form as well. Not that big a deal - I went to a discount store and bought a regular pillow sized it down and then re-stuffed it.
I'm halfway tempted to make one of these for myself now, except when do I spend that kind of time on myself?
