A Patchwork Pillow
I was inspired to make this pillow after seeing this entry by Red Pepper Quilts Star Puzzle Block. She used such fun fabric, and I loved the design. It was so much fun to select the fabric and sew it up. I just LOVE working with half-square triangles. There are so many possibilities and it's all in the way you look at them and the fabrics you use. Love that! It's kind of like life, don't you think? I think my life is all about the way I look at it and the fabrics that make it up. I have this really neat quote that I keep in my office that says "Be Happy for this moment, for this moment is your life." When I think things aren't going my way, or the day seems overwhelming and I start wanting to be somewhere else, I look at that quote and realize that all any of us really have is this very moment. I have watched several of my friends this past year as their lives changed in an instant. So, I have been trying to get the most I can out of every day. So far, so good!
