Squares with Heart Pillow

I discovered a fun new challenge this year that I am going to participate in over at Persimon Dreams.
Becky over at Solar Threads inspired me to join this challenge.  She made a beautiful quilt with batiks.
Squares with Heart Pillow



Squares with Heart Pillow is for the first challenge.  In this challenge the inspiration was Square in a Square.






 My inspiration was the log cabin. I've been busy making wonky log cabin blocks and having a blast. I made this a little wonky and quilted it even a little wonkier. There is a square in every square with a little heart boxed in. I've never made a pillow before and wanted to challenge myself with that. I finished it so that I can remove it off the pillow to wash it or change it..  It's a 14" pillow.

Love the pillow! Thanks so much for the blog love!! I had a blast doing Project Quilting last year! Great to hear from another chic in the sticks, although our town is about 15,000, but I moved from a house about 2 miles away from a town of 900 :-).

I saw the pillow on the challenge space and could not figure out how to leave you a comment. I think it was a wonderful entry. And extremely creative.
