Pillow Talk Swap - Holiday Edition

The Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap wasn't the only swap I joined this fall... I couldn't resist jumping into another round of the Pillow Talk Swap! This round was dedicated to all things holiday. I couldn't decided on a holiday, so I made 2 mosaics - one inspired by Christmas, and one inspired by Valentine's Day - and left it up to my partner to make what she wanted.

And O.M.G.... did I hit the pillow jackpot!

Pillow Talk Swap - Holiday Edition

REINDEER!!  I could not love this pillow any more!  There is no way this will get put away with the holiday decorations come January... this guy will live on the sofa year round.  And Jenny also sent along an adorable holiday mug rug, some cute holiday tissues and a pink thimble.  Such a great swap package!

329:365 Look at the awesomeness that showed up in my mailbox today!! @jennyrach THANK YOU! I love it!! #pillowtalkswap

And the pillow I sent off... well I really love it too.  I had been struggling to come up with a good idea when I saw a picture on Instagram of a quilt Lily created for FatQuarterly... I knew immediately that the block would be perfect for a Christmas pillow.  A snowflake in Moda Crossweave and Basic Grey.
