Moda Blog Hop, Day 4

OK - this is going to be a little different.

The designer for today is ME 
to get to the pattern for my block,
click here

But I didn't just make an 18" block,
I turned it into a pillow
and I didn't just use the Sweet Violet fabric
but instead
used a combination of Sweet Violet
and Sarah's Secret.

Here it is sitting in my chair in the living room.

To make the pillow, follow the directions 
for the pillow top given in the link.

But then you need to turn the 18" top into a pillow
for the instructions on how to do that click here.  

To enter my drawing for the pillow kit, make a comment, 
any old comment and I'll have the 
random number generator pick a number 
and announce the pattern winner tomorrow -
(I know this gets repetitive but I can't think of
a different way to say it and I really need to
say it each day).

The winner of the BOM pattern is

                     I really like purple but haven't used the color too much in my quilts.
                                        Maybe winning would inspire me to do so!

I hope you like it :)
Even if I do say so myself, the quilt looks awesome on a bed.
Happy quilting
