Not a block for Robyn, but.....

How about a Llama pillow???
 I just love him.
And as a perfect companion?? A selvedge quilt!
(tutorial here)
I am stoked about the way it turned out!!
It measures right around 60"x60", bound with Little Apples Aqua Buttons, backed with a trifecta of Remix by Ann Kelle, leftover squares from Theo's 1st Birthday quilt, and Denyse Schmidt's Diamond Check in Cornflower.
Yeah, it's a scrappy back.

I decided to hand quilt after machine quilting two blocks. I wanted a bit more emphasis on the "windmills".  I'm really glad I made the change. I love the chunkiness of the embroidery floss.
I treasure this quilt. Thank you again, ladies.
Just look at these two...
They were meant for each other!


  1. just beautiful! so fun to see it all finished! i spy a familiar square in the 7th pic! :) and cute llama!

  2. both are stunning! I need to finish my 12squared quilt from last year AND this year.

  3. I love, love, love it! I agree that the large floss quilting is just right. And a wonderful companion too.

  4. That quilt is fabulous and the llama definitely adds some spunk. What a cozy corner to nestle into.

  5. A match made in heaven. The quilt looks amazing. Great job!

  6. My heart just skipped a beat! So lovely, so Kristin. The quilt and pillow turned out great!
