LVMQG Product Challenge

I almost forgot. I worked on this project for so long and couldn't show it because I had to wait for the revel. Our meeting was Thursday so here it is.  This was a project that sounded really fun to me. You pick a product and use the colors on the label to make whatever you want. I was going to be on vacation so I needed to figure out something I could do that could be hand sewn. I love the Dresden plate so that was settled. Looking around the house for a product was not hard once I saw the colors on this bottle. With the pieces cut and sewn together all I had to do was hand stitch the outside and the center circle to the backing. When I returned home very pleased with the work I had done I was surfing our guild site when I came across a Dresden plate done for another challenge. I decided mine had to change so I cut it up, scrambled the pieces and sewed it back together. Here is my little 10" pillow.

Since I was on vacation in Hawaii and that is the land of shadow quilting that is what I did, but not by hand.
