Great Pillow Fight swap: top finished

I had an initial idea for you, partner, and I was very excited about it. But amazingly, someone else in the group had the exact same design idea -- and her colour scheme and execution were way better than what I had planned! So first I thought about continuing on with my plan, but with Dylan's input, I decided to move on. I couldn't stand the idea of my partner looking at the pillow I made and thinking of the one made by someone else! *Jealous*

 

And it's probably just as well, because I settled on Lady Harvatine's January block pattern, which satisfies my penchant for obsessively planning placement and colour. I won't be winning any awards for perfectly aligned seams, but I sure hope you like this, partner! I wouldn't mind making a copy of this for myself someday, actually, but we'll see:)

 

Planning to just do echo quilting in the low volume areas. Any other ideas?

 

(And Marika, thank you again for those charm squares! As you can see, some of them made it in. I'll send the others as extras in my partner's package:))
