Tutorial link and GIFTS

My favorite magazine to buy every year is Quilting Arts GIFTS issue.  Always chuck full of things I want to make! I spied this at Hobby Lobby earlier this week and snatched it up.
Of course sitting beside it was this:
Which  upon flipping through I had to have as well.  Also very inspiring and I can't wait to play with some of those patterns.
I have been busy all week working on a Quillow tutorial which I posted on the Quilters Crossing blog so please check it out if you have time. Great for a quick gift!
 Below is one of the Quillows all folded up in its pillow form. For this sample I used Kate Spain's Terrain line which I am absolutely loving! 
I also made up the free pattern for Terrain from Moda's website. Here is a work in progress shot:(All the blocks completed and laying out) Check out the secondary patterns created...
Then I added the white border but I had a whole bunch of 2.5x 10" strips leftover from the layer cake so I made a piano key border to use them up. Did I mention I love this fabric line?????
I really like the end result, I can't wait to quilt it!
I think I am going to keep this baby for me after it has a run in the shop as a sample- we are going to make kits for this too!
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
