I had no plan except to make her a pillow. I just started sewing squares together, with some sashing strips, then I had to make the other side as big as the first side.There were lots of different sized squares and I added sashing from a large chunk I had. I must say it's a little bigger than I meant to make it, but she'll probably like it being big. I really like it...going to be hard to give up.
Here's some pictures of it.
I am really happy with how the pillow turned out, especially since I was really just winging it. It did give me some practice on matching seams up, which I really need. Not everything matches, but pillows are very forgiving, and so are 3 year olds!
