A Beautiful Pillow for this Lucky Girl

Last December I was a super lucky girl!!  I won a very special prize during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and it arrived this week after a little trip over the "pond"!!!  See what I mean by being so lucky . . .

Alison of Little Island Quilting made this beautiful pillow just for me.  Isn't it just fabulous!!  She asked us to give her three words to describe what type of pillow we would like.  I don't remember my words . . . but she sure interpreted them great!!    I love the colors, the design, the quilting!!  I love it all!!

  And look, she even finished it with an invisible zipper.  I wouldn't even begin to know how to do that!

This will be my beautiful pillow's new home.  This is Mom's chair, and it is only fitting it be adorned with this special pillow!!  Thank you a million times over Alison!!  You are the greatest!!

And one last thing.  Alison is having a bit of a hard time at the moment.  He stunning quilt that was sent to Quilt-Con has been lost in the mail.  So if you have a moment,  pop on over and write her a little something to help try and cheer her up.  I know it would mean a lot and I am sure we can all understand how hard this would be.  Here is hoping it get's found soon.

Pin It!


  1. Wow! Now THAT is a DARLING pillow! Lucky you! :)

  2. Pretty pillow! I bet the quilt was just delayed because of the snowstorm. I got an email today that UPS lost some of a shipment and my package was "mishandled." And my sister lives in Maine and didn't get mail service for 2 days. I bet things are just backed up.

  3. Beautiful! I just bought my first invisible zipper to use on my Starburst pillow - the girl at the fabric store told me how to do it without buying the special foot. I hope Alison's quilt shows up soon.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
