Happy Friday! I am back from visiting my grandson and spent a little time yesterday in my sewing room. Ignoring the mess that needs cleaning, I finished a small WIP that was 90% complete. Just that little accomplishment feels so good!
I love Jen Kingwell's new book Quilt Lovely and her courthouse steps pillow. She cleverly changed up the layout of the traditional block so they form a heart shape. I enlarged the block with thoughts of making a quilt. After making one block though, I decided to make it into a pillow instead. In the future I may revisit the quilt idea.

The pillow back is a Liberty of London fat quarter. Actually using my precious Liberty makes me happy.

I quilted lines with my walking foot and then used Perle Cotton 8 to big stitch around the heart shape. I'd like to do more of this. I love the look it gives and the stitching itself is relaxing.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
