A pillow for the nursery

I made the first piece of nursery paraphernalia this weekend.

A pillow made from my favorite fabric selvages. I've been saving these selvages for a long time and I'm so excited to finally use them.

Since we don't know if the baby is a boy or girl, yet, it's a gender-neutral pillow.

You can barely see them, but that yellow fabric has white bunnies on it - definitely one of my favorites!

I quilted the front and back of the pillow cover by attaching an extra layer of white fabric behind each piece of pillow cover, and quilting the layers together. The back of the pillow is has the "pocket" to access the pillow and is solid white. The pillow os 14x14 inches.

Also this weekend, I finished the back to the nine-patch quilt. It's cute but nothing to write home about, so I'll just keep up the suspense until I have a "totally done" photo. I've decided to send the quilt to the long-arm quilter since I am super duper intimidated about quilting it myself.
