Modern Mini Quilt Chllenge

Hi Friends!  I've been away from the computer for awhile.  Did ya miss me??

Well, regardless of the answer to that question, I've missed blogging!  I've been busy sewing, but just haven't taken the time to blog.   But, since Jennifer, of Ellison Lane, is hosting the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge, I thought I'd better do a post so I can enter!  

So here's my entry:

I made this pillow, from my very own design, from my very own brain, for Jennifer H of the TMQG.  Her Flickr and Pintrest photos showed lots of log cabin and courthouse steps inspired pillows and quilts along with pinks and oranges.  She also indicated that she was really getting into Anna Maria Horner.  Well, I have very little AMH in my stash, really only scraps, so I knew I didn't have enough to pull together an 18x18 pillow.  So, I pulled out my FQ bundle of Saltwater and some creamsicle-ish solid and got to cutting.  And here's the result:

I used a variegated Gutterman thread that was in our swag bag from Sew South.  I really like the effect!  I think the pillow was well received; I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I'm linking up to Ellison Lane's Modern Mini Quilt Challenge!  

See you soon, peeps!
