Pieceful Garden Scrap Project: Part 2: My not so “scrappy” pillow

I underestimated the time I would need to complete my scrappy projects from the Pieceful Garden kit scraps. But I did get one of the scrap projects done last night. It turned to be a not-so-scrappy looking 24″ pillow:

The pride and joy of my pillow is the fabric yoyo! I have never made a yoyo before. But I was really inspired by what Arlette has done with her yoyo’s. So, I decided to give it a try. I thought it turned out pretty good and added a little something to the overall look:

Many of my whimsical friends wanted to get in the photo shoot for the pillow. They also wanted me to drag out some of the fineries in life as props. I think some of them just wanted to play with my breakables — you think French Loppie there got a bit carried away as he practically immersed himself in the teacup??!!!:

Thank you for coming to my show-and-tell today. I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed weekend. I will be back on Monday! See you then!!

Disclaimer – you will ONLY have the scraps left from Double-Nine-Patch blocks trimming the blocks for the scrap project. Anything extras you see in my scrap projects require extra fabric(s). You may choose to purchase more fabrics, or mix-and-match with other fabrics. The reason I used coordinating fabrics is because I had extra fabrics left from making the sample quilt for “The Quilter”.
