Cathedral Window Pillow

I LOVE this pillow. You may have heard me talk about it on facebook...but now I'm talking about it here, so it can be entered into a contest!
It was made to go along with a custom quilt order. The quilt took much longer than I expected & I knew I had to do something 'extra' with the pillows. I had never done (or even thought seriously!) about using the technique that I did. I have had a blog post in my favourites for about a year now, that I just liked to look at, thinking '...someday I'll try that...'  {a la mode's blog post}
Then, before I knew it, I was cutting the fabric for them! I am usually super cautious about trying something so new & I procrastinate (me? no way..!) Maybe it was because I was already feeling the time crunch & messing around for weeks wasn't an option.
I l.o.v.e. it. It was a learning experience & I will do some things slightly different next time. Haha, as I was folding/ironing/sewing it, I was thinking "I will never do this again!" But it was really worth it, so I will.
