wip wednesday

This week I have been working on a pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap.  This is the second time I have participated (this is the pillow I made last time) and it is so much fun.
1.  A few days ago I found this paper pieced pattern, picked out some fabrics and got to work.  I shrunk the pattern down to 80% of the original size so this finished pillow will be about 19" square.
2.  My husband saw a photo of Lizzy House's Constellations fabric on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago and asked me to make him a quilt with it.  I am still contemplating what to do with it, but now that I'm looking at it I think that having the fabric sitting on my table influenced the colors I chose for the pillow :)

I am so overwhelmed by the response from SMS Giveaway day.  I have loved reading all of the comments, I am sorry if I'm not able to reply to all of them.  It is so much fun to find so many wonderful new blogs out there.  If you came here looking for the giveaway post, you can find it here.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.
