A pillow for my little guys room...

Heather here. Just wanted to share a quick finish with you all. I did another quilt as you go pillow for my little mans room. I started with a hexagon goldfish and did the quilt-as-you-go method around and around. Adding bits and pieces of my favorite fabrics...

After I trimmed it, I ended up with this. The back is just a simple envelope closure, and a blue binding all around...

My little guy had a fun time finding all sorts of fun things in each print. I am suprised how much he loves these pillows. He sleeps on them, not his real pillow each night. But that is fine by me. It is nice that he actually cares.

Fabric Tuesday and my little boys room...

 Sorry if you follow me on Instagram @quiltstory, you have seen these before. This is my little guys room. Earlier this  year I told myself that I need to work on more projects for my kids rooms. I want their rooms to have so many projects that I created. I would feel bad if all the quilting and crafting I have done, and they didn't have lots for themselves.

Anyhow, here is a partial update on his room. New quilt and pillow, and new wall decals. Just updating from a baby room to a big boy room...

Super simple embroidery. Just some fusible web, and a strait stitch around. This will go on his wall...

This is a quilt as you go pillow I am in the process of. I really like quilt as you go. Such a neat look...

Just some straight stitching on his pillow sham...

I do hate that the pillow case is not the right direction. I may remake it one day, but not for now...

And my little sleeping guy. I think he likes it. I just adore him!

I'm already making quilts to give as Christmas gifts. I will probably do some small things too -- table runners, pouches, totes. I like to have little gifts on hand that I can give when the mood strikes me.
