Late is Better than Never, right?

Way back when my sister was living in Korea (like 6 yrs ago), I started making her some throw pillows for her couch.  I wanted to applique on them and had NO CLUE what I was doing.  Therefore, I got frustrated and just quit.  I put them (the fabric pieces I had nearly destroyed) on the shelf and walked away.  Then a few weeks ago my sister and I were talking and she asked what ever happened to the pillows.  I, shamefully, told her that I still had the fabric...but that if she wanted them I would have to start over.  She was here for a visit last week, with her fabulous children, and after looking at the fabric and huge mess I made with it asked me if I could "whip them up."  Apparently she desperately needed some pillows.  So, here is was she got:

 I cut these flowers out of a home decor print and appliqued them on with a zigzag stitch in an aqua thread.

The back is a stripe from the same home decor fabric line.

Sure hope the colors match her stuff!!!

Have a fabulous Friday!!
