Felt tree pillow update

Felt tree pillow ~ finished. :)
This colorful circle tree pillow is for my soon to be niece. 
The wonderful story behind this is we will be visiting in the States this summer and my sisters due date falls on the time we will be in the States. I am so very grateful to be able to deliver this little pillow to my little niece in person, it is a gift both ways. I love you Debby and can't wait to meet you Gracie.

I was trying to figure out which ribbon to use the blue or the purple ric rac and so I asked my girlies. 
And they said both...:)  What do you think? 
The blue ribbon holds the pillow case together at the bottom along with velcro pieces on each side.


Here is a close up of some of the quilting. :)
All all of the quilting is done in white expect the little circle clouds in light blue
and the grass done in green..

Almost forgot the back. :) So here it is.

This pillow was fun to design and great practice for me. 85% of it was done by hand.


So should I create a blanket to go with?

I think a blanket would be so cute to go along with it. It's just darling!

This is just gorgeous, Becky!!! I love the felt tree and the hand quilting just tops it off beautifully. The blue ribbon looks great, but I'd go with a purple ribbon. Thanks for linking up...

Becky,
Hey friend! I took a blogging break for a few months and am so excited to be back and see what everyone's been up to. Your site has been my first stop and I LOVE your pillow! It is so springy and cheerful -- I can't wait to pin this and share the goodness. Your new blog header is darling and so perfect for you. I've had fun catching up on your older posts and making notes for projects to make with my kids this summer. As always, you are such an inspiration. Blessing from Utah ... ~Nike
