Amy & Janel's Granny Square Pillows


You may remember that I had made a granny square pillow for my new couch. I appreciated all the sweet comments on it by the way! Your comments always make me smile!

A few of us were chatting and Janel & Amy both asked if I would make them one. I had so much fun making mine that I thought "why not?" They each sent me the color combination they were wanting and I found some yarn that I thought matched their ideas from Hobby Lobby and started working on them. I finished them last night and I am pretty pleased with the way they turned out. I love the color combinations they chose!


This one is Amy's. She chose gray, light teal and mustard yellow. At first I thought it was a strange combination until I started working on it. I really love this combination! My mom even commented on how neat the colors looked together.


This one is Janel's. These colors are sooo pretty together. I love the linen color that separates each color.

Janel & Amy: I hope they are what you were hoping for! Thanks so much for asking me to do this for you two. I enjoyed the excuse to make more!
