Kaleidoscope Pillow & 100th Post Giveaway!

Today marks my 100th post! Wow! To celebrate this glorious day, I have a giveaway! But first...my new pillow :)


I made another beautiful pillow yesterday. I was so anxious to make this Kaleidoscope picture the minute I saw Rita's version on her blog Red Pepper Quilts. I obviously decided to go a different direction with the style and colors. I really love the way it turned out! As if there wasn't enough going on with it already...I decided to do some stitching  in black. I thought about using Red or Yellow but Black really seemed to complete the look. What do you think?

  2. Your pillow is fun! Love all those diamonds and triangles. I am with you on that pattern - pillows are a smaller size to experiment with new designs!!!

  3. that pillow rocks! I agree with your choice of black. I think that red or yellow would have taken away from it. Congrats on your 100th post! I'm already a follower (of course!). If you get a chance, you should share this awesome pillow at Needle and Thread Thursday!
