With the leftover pieces from the quilt, I had made this little string pieced gem. Originally thinking I would use it as the center of a pieced backing for the quilt, but I had several friends who said "You can't put that on the back of a quilt...it's too cute for the back". So, instead I turned it into a great big pillow! (using a 27" pillow form)
not the best photos at night...
Both sides of this quilt make me happy!
and here they are together!
