Pastel Circle Pillow

Hello all.  I hope your Easter weekend was bright and cheerful and full of family and chocolate! Ours sure was!

Now -- how would feel about a pretty pastel, spring-like share for today??

Yes?  Good. I'm glad.

How does this tickle your fancy??

Doesn't this mix of prints just SCREAM "Spring?"

Before I began cutting I decided how I was going  to use each colour.  Good old pencil  and paper planning always works best for me!

Then, using 
(Thanks, Lori!)
I created my nine circles.  

I was pleased with the shape of my circles.  Some were quite wonky so when it came time to pin them on the white background fabric, I had to manipulate them into the roundest shape possible

Overall, I am pretty chuffed with how it turned out.   I really wanted to add some shots of pink into my mostly green and white living room.  

See how nicely it snuggles up beside my Dresden pillow? 

I am thinking I may make an entire quilt using this technique.  I like how using the larger circles means that the print on each fabric can been seem clearly  and enjoyed fully.  

Maybe I'll make a twin bed-sized quilt for the daughter's bed.  Her room is getting a makeover in the next month and her current quilt has seen better days.  

Hmmm....... Another project to ponder!


  1. You know B, I think I can manage this one and will have a go. I hope your Easter is going well. I've done the one thing that was the worst thing to do...I got on the scales this morning and now depressed with tipping them at the heaviest I have ever been. So, I'll have to finish eating all the chocolate today and start the diet tomorrow! ;o)

  2. Super cute! I love the spring colors and prints.
