Happy Easter and a Free Download!

I wanted to do a quick post to say Happy Easter to those of you celebrating this weekend!  Spring is finally in the air.  Even though we got snow this week - but we won't talk about that. 
14 inch pillows
I made these really cute Easter pillows a couple of years ago.  They were so much fun - I made three!  The carrot center is paper pieced from a pattern by Deb Karasik.  She has the pattern on her web site as a free download.  I have included a link below.
After completing the paper pieced carrots, I just added fabrics around the outside until I got to the desired size.  I added some machine quilting and some big stitch hand quilting and I was done.  Easy - peasey!!
16 inch pillow
I hope you enjoy your holidays and Spring!!
Lucy decided she wanted to make my Easter table topper into a comfortable bed for herself. 

Happy Easter!
