75th Birthday Party...

My mother was born in England and came stateside when she was 12.  For her 75th Birthday, I made her this Union Jack pillow.  I've been seeing blocks all over the blogs and have wanted to do one ever since,
This is the pattern that I used to make a 20" pillow.  I paper pieced the 4 quadrants on this pattern and it saved a lot of fabric.  You can find the pattern here.  I made the pillow entirely from stash fabric--yahoo!!!  Can't wait to make a few more pillows and possibly a quilt....

I thought the pillow was lovely...as was the Birthday Banner. Mom wondered if it was hers to keep and I told her that I thought it wasn't. She was glad she hadn't snatched it up and brought it home.
I thought the whole party turned out nicely.

Your mother will love the pillow for sure! It's wonderful to give gifts that are not only beautiful. but have sentimental meanings too.
