Many years ago, one of our lovely craftsters made me some great pillow covers for the large pillows in my living room. I have enjoyed them daily for all this time. However, I received a pillow for Christmas where I would rather have a different cover, so Inhung that cover with some mini quilts, and pulled out my fabric, and decided it was time to use the wonky star I made last year. That encouraged me to use the bird with a button eye block, and start covering the large pillows. They are about 22"x24". For Mother's Day last year, I got Elizabeth Hartman's Penguin Party pattern, but hadn't made one yet. Between yesterday and today, I made the really fun penguin pillow. I apparently now have a bird menagerie. I still have 1 more super big one to recover, a smaller one I could choose to, and turquioise crocheted cover I made years ago (it's all one piece so can't come off unless cut), that I could create a crochet bird applique to add.

These are all so different, but they are so happy!
I recently got a snap tool, so they all are envelope closure with snaps.

Thanks for looking.

Glad to know my 'Ctrl' mistake has finally been covered! Cute, cute, cute penguin! Looks like you should consider joining the Quilt Block Swap when donniesgirl opens it later this month.

Lol!

I might, but I have a bunch of wonky stars blocks from Instagram awaps last year, and I still don't know what to do with them. I had started cutting out their usernames with my Cricut and ironing them on, but in retrospect, I don't like that. I don't want to do the same with a block swap here too (trade blocks with no intention of what to do.)
