Spring Painted Roses Pillow


This morning I finished off a pillow for an exchange gift.  I am early in finishing but this one just carried me away. I used Cherry Heart Designs Painted Roses pattern, and added Edie Eckman's Border 35 for a small ruffle edge.  Very hard to take a photo in winter in my north facing house, and I propped it in a south facing window to capture the colors better. The exchange has a spring theme and these colors match the intended recipient's color wishes.

Notes to self, as I desire to make a pillow like this for my own home:  4 mm hook, backing square is 19 rounds.

This was a stash buster 100%.  SSDK in Cream, Gold, Camel, Parma Violet, Duck Egg, Soft Peach, Apricot, Lemon, Pale Rose, Wisteria, Cloud Blue, Clematis, Raspberry, Cypress, Meadow, Pistachio.
