I decided to make birthday girl Raquel……wait for it……a pillow. I know, y’all are surprised!

 

Anyway, this pillow is supposed to be a french buldog, Raquel just adopted a cutie-pie Frenchie. Working with all black fabric for the frenchie fell a little flat. I think it’s cute in the “it’s handmade with love” kinda way. haha

Instead of calling her homely, I’ve decided to say she has personality! :)

I found the perfect backing fabric again. Isn’t it adorable!? I’m still crushing on lapped zips for the back of pillows. Getting faster at assembling them too!

Here she is will all the other bday goodies. Goody shopping is still my favorite.

I carved up this cutie frenchie stamp (which I forgot to put in the package!) I’ll have to give her to Raquel at the next AMQG meeting.

I finished up my stash bee blocks for Oct. I realized I have almost completely depleted my stash of solids. Where do they go?

Next up for the pillow parade is this awesome Hurricane block pattern I tested for Littlebunnyquilts a while back. I hope I have the perfect backing fabric in my stash again :)
