Another Pleated Boxes Pillow

Normally, mom writes her own posts but I’m helping her out today and writing this one for her.  Friday is therapy day for Gene and mom always goes along to see how he is doing.  He’s starting to walk with the help of a special walker.  We’re all so very proud of him and the hard work he’s been doing!
Any woo…mom saw the pleated boxes pillow I made and decided she wanted to make one.  {Who doesn’t love to enter sew alongs and try to win prizes}  Long story short, it had to be finished by today which is why I’m doing the post.  Whew…that was a long drawn out story.
She actually put this cute little pillow together last night.


I love the fabric she used especially the stripes on the back.  I would also like to point out her perfect little pleats!  She has to be the most precise person I know!  I usually just throw pieces together and make it work!  Great job Mom!
Now a little show and tell from my house.  I got some new goodies today from Moda.
This is just a couple of things I ordered…my favorites.  I’ve been wanting to try the circle rotary cutter so I finally ordered one for me and some to sell.  And of course, I just had to get some copies of the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt Book!  One for me and some to sell.  Are you noticing a pattern here?  One for me, one for you, one for me, one for you…I just couldn’t help myself.
I was looking through my new book and I can’t wait to make something.  I noticed there are lots of blocks in the book that I’ve made before and didn’t know they had names or that they are part of this book.
We ordered some new paper piecing foundation paper too.  I haven’t tried it yet but it’s supposed to be pretty good stuff.  It’s made by June Tailor.  Too bad I stink at paper piecing.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see who wins the Blog Hop Giveaway.  I’m not sure what time I’ll post the winner.  We have our first soccer game tomorrow morning at 9 so I think it will be after that.  Love watching my boy play soccer…hate having to get up early on Saturday.
