After cutting up milk jugs to go over the plants in the garden, I was in a recycling mood. I dug in my stash of garage sale clothes and cut up an old pair of jeans to make a pillow for a Friday finish.
There were eight 5" charm squares in red left from a charm exchange last year to make sixteen 4 1/2" half square triangles. I arranged the squares until I found a pleasing pattern and pieced them together. I'm still practicing different free motion quilting designs and used a few on the quilting. I used red piping for the edge and a envelope back for easy washing. The pillow is 16 inches.

And finally, the bunnies survived the cold. We thought there was 3. Hubby told me there is 5. Today I counted 6. They are multiplying and growing, but they still live in my garden. Only now they are protected with straw thanks to hubby.
