Lucky Pillow

I made this pillow for Tammy, one of the birthday girls in the Handmade Birthday Club, and entered it in the Pillow Collective on Amy's Creative Side blog.

Luck was on my side and my name was drawn to win the Fat Quarter Shop $50 gift card. 
I was jumping up and down. It's so fun to win gift cards.

I used the gift card to help purchase some of Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics to be used as  backing and background fabrics. Did you know that the Screen print (the one on top) comes in extra wide? It also comes in 5 colors.Sometimes, it's so perfect to not have to piece the backing on a quilt.

Thank you to Amy for hosting the Pillow Collective and to Fat Quarter Shop for my winnings!
