First Finish 2016

I have finished my first project for 2016, a pillow I made for my sister for Christmas.  I am a little late getting it done but was slowed down by the nineteen pillowcases I completed for my grandchildren.  I thought that my sister would understand the delay a little better than the little ones.

This picture shows four of the nineteen pillowcases.  I was in such a hurry to get everything wrapped and forgot to take a picture.  The zipper bag was one of the six I made for my daughters and daughters in law.

My sisters and I drew names and got together before Christmas to exchange gifts and have a progressive dinner.  Our husbands came to the dinner and we had a great time.  I chose this pillow cover from the Better Homes and Gardens Make It Yourself magazine Fall and Winter 2015. This project was designed by Amy Sinibaldi of Nana Company.  

This is Lynda's pillow cover completed.  It was fun to put together and nice to complete my first project for the year.  This project was listed on my first quarter 2016 Finish Along post here.  Now on to the next one!
I will be linking this post to the Q1 2016 Finish Along post at Clover and Violet
