Monday Making

It's finished.

I took a class from David Taylor last month.
A class sponsored by my local guild.
Taking guild classes is a GREAT opportunity to learn from
teachers around the globe!

Most of us chose this pattern and David gave us lots of great hints on applique.
I enjoyed the class and learned a lot.

But's fussy.
I'm not fussy.

The pieces SHOULD fit together like a puzzle.
Mine didn't.
I fudged.
I fudged QUITE a bit.
Don't tell.

Maybe I should teach a class on how to FUDGE!!!
I'm pretty good at it.

I added some scrappy borders to the pillow.
Can you believe I didn't need to cut ANY out??
They were ALL there ready to go.
LOTS of BLUES in my 2 1/2" squares drawer.

Scraps to the RESCUE!

With Christmas on the horizon...
I was anxious to finish it!!!

Hopefully this week I'll get going on MORE HANDMADE gifts!

Link up and share what 
YOU are making this week!!!
