Almost three years ago, I won some of Tim Holtz's Eclectic Elements fabrics from his site.  Then, just a few days later, I also won more from another site.  I've been saving the fabric until just the right moment.  (I did use a small amount to make a little cross-body purse.)

Well, that moment arrived today!  But first, a bit of history ... 15 years ago, I sewed a little pillow to keep on the couch.  In those fifteen years, that little pillow has seen a lot of use!  It was falling apart ... the seams were disintegrated, the piecings were falling apart.  You get the story.  I purchased a pillow form about two months ago, but I didn't know what I would do with it.

Yesterday afternoon, I was nosing around Pinterest, looking for ideas for a pieced pillow cover.  Lo and behold, up popped a rag quilt pillow!  Aha!  That's the ticket!

So this morning, after I finished some other projects around the house, I created this pillow ... and the other one is now in the trash. Don't feel bad for it, though; it deserves the chance to become one with the earth yet again.
