    Today's pillow accomplishments :)

    It all started with me making my brother's bed and putting the quilt back on his bed. My mom had made him a matching pillow when she made the quilt and a while ago he asked me to fix the pillow that was pretty beat up. So today I made him a new one, and pulled the hubcaps off the old one. Then I worked a little on the pineapple block I was going to make for my grandfather but it was frustrating me so I started a new block for him and made one for my grandma as well. I think I'm going to embroider something in the center of those so they're just blocks for now.

    this is also my first time uploading pics on the new site, so we'll have to see what happens

    Pic 1: the new pillow
    Pic 2: the old pillow minus the wheels
    Pic 3: his quilt
    Pic 4: Grandma's pillow block
    Pic 5: Pap's pillow block

    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.

    Your pictures are great! Boy was the old pillow ever faded. Your pillow, blanket and quilt blocks are very nice. The truck pattern is really cute. I'm thinking it would be pretty easy to do with yo yo's for hubcaps.

    That is the cutest quilt! You did a great job on the new pillow. He will be so happy. The blocks for your grandmother and grandfather turned out very nice too! All around good quilting day!
