February OMG complete!

My One Monthly Goal over at Red Letter Quilts for February was to sew two floor pillows for my sister and brother-in-law. 

They moved into a new house last fall, and bought a new couch (and throw pillows!) for the family room. When we visited for Thanksgiving, I noticed that they had some old oversized pillows they had brought into the room for extra seating/back rests (10 of us descended on their house for the holiday weekend...we were taking up lots of space!).  I decided to make new matching covers for the pillows as a belated house warming gift.

The leaf pillow you see below was what she already had. Obviously, when I stumbled across this gray, green, and yellow stripe, it was an easy decision to buy it! 

She was happy (and surprised!) to receive the new covers, and we both love how they look in her family room!

February OMG

It's month #2 of One Monthly Goal over at Red Letter Quilts and I'm going small and easy. February always sneaks up on me, being a short month and all! 

I bought this home dec weight fabric before the holidays to make new floor pillows for someone (being vague in case she reads this, as she might not recognize herself!). February is my month to get those pillows made!
