His First Pillow

I made this pillow for my youngest grandson, who is fascinated by cars, trucks and anything that moves. It became his new favorite "car" the moment he laid eyes/hands on it. I found this fat quarter at a local quilt shop while looking for something else entirely. Within two feet of this very cute print I found a basket of softly shaded minky squares. A pillow was born in my eyes, one that would stand up to a toddler's love. After pre-shrinking these pieces it was a quick matter of trimming the trucks and stitching the square. A quick stuffing of polyfil and a whip stitch later, this pillow lay in this chair to wait for its new owner. My heart filled up when he hugged it the first time. He woke up this morning and brought it to the table. He brought it along on our car ride too. He better take it along home tonight so that he can share it with his crib buddies. After all, it is just the right size and a welcome addition to Lambie and Peter Rabbit!
