Mini Monday

Memorial Day.
A day of reflection and thankfulness.

Loverly fabric I picked up a while ago.  No selvage, so I have no idea what it is.

I learned a new technique today.  I picked up a free pattern a couple of weeks ago and decided to spend some time today playing at the sewing table.  I didn't want to commit too much on something I had never done before.....I'm learning!  LOL

I ended up with this sweet mini pillow!
Sort of a Cathedral Window effect.
I enjoyed sewing the curves into the corners and will definitely be trying this on a larger scale.
This cutie comes in under 9" sq.
I straight line quilted the border seams.  Love that lacey look it has!  I then quilted a 1/4" along the inside seams and up and down the middle, outside "triangles" for some definition.

Here it is with my Spring Sprocket Pillow.
They make me smile!

Thank you for all the thoughts, prayers and well wishes for my mom!  She was very tired Monday after her last radiation...and then went on to start "heavy" chemo on Thursday.
She is a seven-year miracle!

Linking up with
for my week-long quilt fix!
