And for my sister-in-law: a quillow! Perhaps you remember the quillow I made for Luke's youngest sister a while back? This Christmas I made one for the sister in the middle.
beautiful one one Soule Mama last year. It is such a simple way to frame and draw attention to favored fabric scraps. And boy did I have fun choosing the scraps for this one! I used all kinds of vintage pieces I had waiting for their time to shine, and then juxtaposed them with various Kona solids.
Ultimately I knew the only possibility for the pillow applique was a turtle. My sis-in-law loves turtles...like a lot. One time I walked into the living room and as she sat on the couch talking to me she held two tiny toy turtles in her hands...except that after about 5 minutes I realized they were walking...and that they were real live pet turtles. Yep, she loves them.
Before I dared give away the quillow I had Wren scrutinize it and give her stamp of approval. Thank goodness it passed inspection.
