This was a spontaneous idea we had as a quilting bee and that's also the first finished project we made.We wanted to make a pillow for a friend and opted for this beautiful raspberry kiss block by Wooden Spoon Quilts.
We loved the colour pallete of the finished pillow in the tutorial and each of us made 5 blocks in yellow, orange, red, pink and purple. The pillow is approx. 60 x 60cm/ 23x23'' big and fluffy.
Each of us contributed materials as well such as the batting, zipper, the back fabrics, thread and I (as the Bee Momma) put it all together.
I opted to do the loopy loop free motion quilting rather than straight lines as the tiny blocks from 5 different people did have differences in size but overall the pillow looks super lovely and I'm sure it will be well received.
I'm feeling very proud having accomplished a little side project as a bee with my great girls from the Quilty Circle of Bees.
Linking this to Finish up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and Modern Patch Monday at the Modern Cologne Quilters.
