Last week, Lynda Hall sent me a couple of patterns as a happy present, since I have been sick. I love keeping busy, I cannot just sit and do nothing;) I will be using them to make presents for some of my friends, so I was delighted to receive them. If you have never seen Lynda's patterns, her site is a must see. She makes the most beautiful quilts and has a wonderful way with color and fabric to bring a primitive look to each one. I love seeing her decorations as well, she changes them out with the seasons. She also has a newsletter, so be sure to sign up. This month she is running specials on patterns for her newletter subscribers.
So, since i have time on my hands, I wanted to do something special for her. I made her a punched pillow using the design from her Shirley block. I used variegated wool on the wings and my own hand dyed grungy green for the dress and outer border. I really like how this one came out. I hope she does too. Luckily she is away, so she won't see this until she gets home;)
And don't forget, if you haven't commented on the contest, be sure to leave a comment and get a chance to win a signed copy of Lynnette Anderson's new book.
