    i like the look of the stitches in the center of the blocks on the pillow. are they strictly decorative or are they functional?

    Ok I promised to post a pic of the quilt that the pillow goes with. here ya go :)

    I hand dyed the fabrics for this and spent almost a week deciding on how to put the blocks together and finally settled on this layout. She loves the quilt has in on her bed. She'll be 4 come June 3.

    TY Everyone this is my favorite quilt outta all the ones I've done,
    and the one I'm proudest of. :)
    I asked gd what color blanket she wanted and she just kept listing colors so
    I said ok. rainbow quilt it is and this is what she got.
    All those hsq bout wore me out too.
    The colors/fabrics in pillow are exactly the same as in quilt I found the leftovers lurking in bottom of a bin couple weeks ago.

    That's a cute song Alaskan :)
