Hydrangeas and Butterflies pillow finished!

Tonight I finished the paper-pieced pillow-top that goes with the Hydrangeas and Butterflies quilt. Hydrangeas and Butterflies Pillow Finished I did the piecing on it months ago. It was the first Carol Doak design I did before I started on last year's Fat Eighth Swap in her Yahoo Group, which took place from April - June I think. I used some of the same fabrics that I used in the quilt, and made a cording edge using the same stripe that I used for the binding of the quilt. It is probably hard to see the back of the pillow, maybe some of it in the second picture, but it is the fabric from the border of the quilt. I hand pieced it, and just finished assemblying it tonight. The cording gave me a few problems, but I really wanted to use it so I kept working with it. This completes the Hydrangeas and Butterflies "set." Now on to other projects! Hydrangeas & Butterflies Pillow and Quilt

Love the hanging and how you've incorporated it using the colours from your bed ensemble. Your bedroom looks so restful and cosy.
