Wow!  These are very cool!  My Mom would absolutely die if she saw the hummingbird one!  Very, very cool!

Well these are just lovely! I especially covet the hummingbird for how vintage it looks.

Your pillows are beautiful. Wow!! such a lot of work on the bits.  They came out great.  I love the look!!!  Love the way you sewed on the white flowers.

The hummingbird one's especially gorgeous - the patchwork background works so well, and doesn't compete with the main design.  (Not sure I'd have the patience to do it!) Smiley  Also love how on the cherry blossom pillow, the quilting follows he shape of the branches.
