It's fall!? How did that happen? Time flies. For the Hello Fall Blog Hop I decided I wanted to create a new pillow. Carla with Creatin' in the Sticks always has such fun blog hops.
I went digging in my Island Batik scrap bin and found some beauties leftover from a 10 inch square stack. It was a challenge making sure I had enough of each color but with different backgrounds I was able to persevere.
I decided that they needed applique stems. And while I was at it I decided to make them fancy stems. Which ended morphing into this:
I love how the stitching adds to the design.
I was at this point where I'd added a border when it occurred to me that this would be a nice sized pillow.
It was Sunday and my preferred pillow form store was closed....but Mom came to my rescue as she had one! Happy Fall!

I hope you get to quilt today!
