Postage Stamps and Gumdrops

I finished another UFO - a Postage Stamp quilt consisting of 2.5 inch squares and bordered by 10 inch "Sister's Choice" blocks. For the backing I used a yellow sheet from the thrift store. And for quilting...I meandered.

Also this weekend the two granddaughters helped me stuff a gumdrop pillow. I used the stuffing from a bunch of old pillows my in-laws had in their closet when they passed away. The stuffing was flying everywhere but we finally got the job done...
A gumdrop pillow from an Amy Butler pattern that's just right for a footstool. Now I plan to make a bunch more for Christmas. I've been saving home decor fabric I've found at the thrift store on old fogey days.
