As you can see from the picture above I went with the "Lake View" pillow.
I looked all over Flickr to see what I could do about all the corners of the blocks. Some corners looked pretty good (not perfect) and some I could see right through to the other side of the piece which wasn't good. I thought of making yo-yo's, using regular buttons, folding fabric (again) to cover all those points but making fabric covered buttons won out.
There are nine fabric covered buttons (another craft I have never done) and half way through making them I changed colors. I was going to make them dark blue but that just took away from all the work that I had done. I didn't want anyone to look at the pillow and only see the buttons so white won out. Since I only bought what I needed taking the ones apart that I had already done was quite a challenge.
I love this pillow! I should have taken a picture with my mom and the pillow but of course I didn't think of it then. I will definitely be making this pillow again and conquering my fear of binding!
In other exciting news our Christmas was fantastic. I was surprised with a Silhouette Cameo from my husband and I can't wait to start being creative with it.
Hope everyone has the healthiest of New Year's! We're celebrating with neighbors and I'm looking forward to saying good-by to 2012!
Have a Great Day!
