Playing Hooky!

I saw these pillows on Facebook early Saturday morning - 
the pattern was a free download on Quilting Daily.

I had a long list of things to do Saturday including a number of quilts that needed my time and we had to leave by mid-afternoon for a wedding. When I went upstairs to sew, I decided that I really wanted needed to make a pumpkin pillow. I grabbed some batik scraps and started sewing. If that wasn't 'bad' enough, I also did the decorative stitching between the strips in the pumpkin like the pattern suggested. 
It was fun playing with my new sewing machine and altering some of the decorative stitches.

Here is the pillow - it is the only thing I accomplished on Saturday!
And I thoroughly enjoyed playing hooky from the things that really needed to be done!
