Secret project revealed

Last month I mentioned I had been working on a super secret project. It had been finished for a while and recently was given as a birthday present.The reason it was secret was that the intended recipient is no stranger to the blogging world. But now that it won't be spoiling the surprise I can show it to you.  

Yes it's another pillow with herringbone tucks. 

And a surprise in the back
I pieced a checker pattern from Kona solids and a couple of squares of the front color

It was a fun project 
(except for the zipper - somehow I always struggle with zippers)



  1. Love this pillow! Great idea, thanks for sharing... I waited patiently for you to reveal the suprise!

  2. This is beautiful! Lovely. What kind of fabric did you use? I have never worked with anything "shiny" before, do you need a special needle? x

  3. The pillow is beautiful, the recipient is very lucky!! I'm participating in the “Week-End Blog Hop” and I’m now the newest follower of your great site. Hope you have a chance to check out my blog, have a look around and maybe follow me back!!

  4. Oh - I get the zipper issue.

    Talk about a seriously time consuming project. Yikes - I couldn't do it without losing my mind.

  5. That is fabulously gorgeous, Caroline!!!

  6. Great pillows. I love the herringbone tucks especially.
    I am stopping by from Sunday's hops. I am a new follower. Great blog. Blessings...

  8. I don't even know where to begin with zippers so you are worlds ahead of me! Great job!

  9. How cute! Love the checkers! Thanks for linking to Fabric Tuesday!


I would love hearing from you. I read all comments and time permitting will respond to all.
