Ribbons for Mother's Day : :

Diamond Strinsg Pillow with Ribbons!

Last night I added the binding to a new Diamond Strings pillow! It's that same wonderful size as the first one, but this time I used Bonnie Christine's beautiful Winged fabric collection with the addition of her gorgeous Winged Renaissance Ribbons. Butterflies & Flowers, yes please!

I love making these style of quilt blocks, whether I'm making just a few for pillows like this one or many more for a quilt. They're just so much fun and quick to make, I don't think I'll ever be sick of them!

The added ribbons makes this pillow seem extra special. The pretty color palette combined with these gorgeous embroidered, jacquard decorative ribbons adds such a fancy, beautiful layer of detail. So perfect for Mother's Day gift-giving, my plan from the very beginning!

The back is finished in one of my very favorite Winged prints, quilted with an aqua blue Aurifil 50wt, and bound for a nice, neat finish!

After snapping a few photos this morning out on our porch swing, I think this Mama needs one of her very own!
