Okay, without further ado...here it is. Just in time for Valentine's Day, a new pillow design. I know...it seemed to take me forever to get it done but I was out of town and then skiing (twice) and blah blah blah. But it's a pretty quick project and was fun to make.
Pam has been at me for ages to do a pillow pattern. She makes pillows using my method because it's quick and easy and has a finished look. So here it is...the first of hopefully several pillow patterns. This one is available only via my website--not in quilt shops.
I about lost my mind when I saw her version of "Key to My Heart" even tho hers doesn't have a key. It's absolutely adorable--and her leaves are the cutest ever.
I'm pleased that I didn't have to spend any money at all to make mine...used up some favorite fabric bits. Didn't have "the right" color thread but made do because let me tell you it's a DRIVE
to get to the nearest shop that carries thread. The only thing I needed to shop for was the key. I'm lucky because even tho I'm in a town that only has one traffic light, it happens to have a shop that carries a huge assortment of old rusty keys. The day I was there, the owner was very busy and I had to wait a long time to purchase my key. I stood there happily gazing at all the bins full of rusty treasures but he felt badly to have kept me waiting so insisted that I just take the key. How cool was that?
So how do you get the pattern? Go to my website and you'll find the pattern in two forms. If you want a printed pattern the price is $7.95 plus shipping. If, however, you'd like to have a PDF to download and print yourself, that option is $6.95. My website isn't set up to handle this automatically, so once payment is received I'll be emailing the PDF pattern to you. As quickly as I possibly can--hopefully within minutes, but absolutely the same day.
Another detail...this is a limited edition pattern. On Valentine's Day poof! it's gone. Hopefully to be followed by another pillow but who knows. Spring is coming and it would be nice to have a pillow to celebrate but these days I'm a bit distracted because there are still snow covered hills I haven't fallen down on yet.
