sewing again

When I made the quilt top almost two weeks ago, I had 3 blocks left over.

So today, I chopped two of them in half, and the third one into quarters, and then I stitched them together around a plain center block.

Well, it was plain when I stitched them up.

After that, I sewed a pretty little heart into the center of it all. As you can see.

It might have been easier had I stitched the heart in place before I put the border pieces on. Keep that in mind if you decide to make a pillow like this.

So far, the back is just overlapped envelope style. I might add buttons/buttonholes to keep the edges together... depends on how much it gets carted around. I'm pretty sure Ellie's going to love it.

Oh, and in case you're wondering; no, I still haven't cleaned up the sewing room.
