Holiday Lane Pillow/Giveaway

This is the last day for our fantastic blog hop organized by Madame Samm and Pauline. They have done a wonderful job as usual with this. I had a blast!!!! And we need to thank Jill for this great pattern.  We have seen so many inventive versions of this pillow; each one fantastic!

Here is what I did for my day.....
Here you can see the stars quilted in the sky.....

 little snowflakes for tree tops.....and the town clock below...my snow is white felt
On the back I wrote Holiday Lane....in case you can't read my writing...lol

I chose to make a pillow form, and an envelope back for the pillow...
|And instead of a flang around the pillow front...I just added it as a border; as you could see in the first picture.
Each blog hop that I have joined has been a sheer delight with our Madame Samm....cheers to you girl! Thank you to Pauline and Jill also for making it so much fun.

Now; if you are still with me.....the giveaway; I have 3- 1/4 yards of fall fabric for someone.  All you have to do is leave a comment.  How easy is that now????  Hope you enjoyed the post folks..
Here is your gift from me: I will randomly draw a winner on Sunday/Dec.2nd.


Here is today's list of fellow hoppers:
