More pillows for down under

A couple of weeks ago I promised more pillows for Carol's cushion cover drive. She makes and gathers cushions for families recently struck by flooding in Queensland (Australia). More stash digging yielded 3 more covers. Two are definitely going to make some little girls happy.  Flowers and pixies. I better hide them before my daughter tries to highjack them for her bedroom.

This third one is bold to say the least. The block was a discard (a discard !!??!!)  from another quilter. I sashed it in orange satin and it really pops. I had a great time putting it together even though each time I cut satin, I get all huffy about all the fraying.

100 % still stashbusting
100% happy about finishing this project
I may even make a couple more if I can sneak some time in the studio tonight
