Rainbow Eggs Pillow and a New Look!

Before I chat about my springy pillow, I just wanted to show off GXQ's new look!!  (Hop on over from Google Reader if you need to...)  Lee has been so awesome to help me out when she's got a million things (and a quilt along!) going on over there at Freshly Pieced.  THANK YOU ten times over Lee.  Wonderful job!

And don't forget to enter the Crafty Girls Giveaway here..

---we now return you to your regularly scheduled program---

Does this pillow make you happy?  I can't help but be cheerful when I look at this pillow.  


I've had this pillow in my mind since I received my It's A Hoot charm pack in the mail from Sew Delightful Fabrics in December.  I couldn't get past all the egg fabrics and my need for an Easter pillow.  Sure makes me feel like spring!


There are 16 eggs, raw-edge appliqued on the solid bone background.  I stippled all over, but avoided the eggs.  Then (and this is the crazy part), I cut a bunch more charms into 1.5" x 5" strips and made a strip long enough to pipe the pillow all around!  I wasn't sure if this part would look good or disasterous, but in the end, I love the hodge podge of colors it's creates!


Now, I'm off to make an Easter wall hanging with the rest of the charm pack to match.


I'm entering it in the Pillow Party!
