Holiday Lane Pillow Blog Hop!

Welcome! Today I am participating in this wonderful blog hop!
Sponsored by Sew We Quilt (http://www.sewwequilt.com/)
and hosted by Pauline (http://www.quiltnqueen.blogspot.ca/)
this blog hop features a pillow pattern by Jill (http://www.jillilystudio.com/)
 
I knew right away what fabric I would use to make my pillow--fabrics designed by Laurel Burch. I am a fan of her holiday fabric lines.
 
A few years ago I made an Advent Calendar...
 ...and a matching tree skirt using her very colorful fabrics.
 
So of course, my Holiday Lane creation must match the set!

No pillow would be complete without a Laurel Burch signature kitty in a window, watching for excitement along Holiday Lane...
 Ah, a lovely candle burns in a neighbor's house...
 It looks like a flock of tropical birds have landed in the trees outside...

 And here is the completed pillow. I love it!
 
I thoroughly enjoyed this creative diversion from some rather challenging projects.
