FF: Banzo's Pillow
Some time last week, I finished this pillow for my oldest son, Banzo. I had originally intended the circle of geese to be used for a bee block, but my paper piece pages were printed a bit too small, and the block finished at 12" square instead of 12.5". Lame! So, it sat on my wall, waiting for its moment. (I used this free template for the circle of geese, and I bordered it in Kona Charcoal.)
I decided to make the block into a pillow, when I gave it to him, Banzo immediately hugged it and went about finding the perfect place on his bed. Later, he told me, "You made me my pillow because you love me, Mama." Then I got a big hug out of the deal. Yes, I melted from the sweetness!
I'm linking up today with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF hosted this week by Lynette at What a Hoot Quilts.
