whirligig pillow {plus a giveaway}

Today was a lovely, relaxing day. It's pretty cold outside, which I like very, very much, so we spent our afternoon inside playing and reading. I even managed to squeeze some sewing time in and finished my needle turn applique pillow.

This pillow is 100% inspired by two amazing ladies, Sarah Fielke and Mary (Molly Flanders). I adore Sarah's new book Quilting from little things and this pillow is a mix of these two projects from her book.

I've been eyeing these quilts for quite some time but it wasn't until I saw Mary's amazing version of Whirligig quilt that I finally could not resist and had to give it a try.

I know the slow process of needle turn applique is not for everyone, but I can honestly say I love it and I'm totally smitten with the final result.

I liked this project so much that I even decided to use some of my precious Liberty fabric for the border. I then used some fun Modern Vintage fabric for the back of the pillow, installed a hidden zipper closure and the pillow was finished. Yay!!! It's quite big (20" x 20") and so wonderfully squishy, just like a pillow should be.

I hope you're still with me, because now we're getting to the giveaway part.
