Le Challenge Entry: Gold

Hi friends!  Just under the wire, I wanted to submit an entry for this month's Le Challenge.  The theme is: gold.  I took an easy, literal approach to the challenge by making a bow pillow with some Remix chevron gold-accented fabric that I won at a guild retreat almost two years ago.  You all know I am a big Ann Kelle fan, so this was a great prize.

I used my own Bow Pillow tutorial along with some Kona solid (Apple?) from my stash.  

I always prefer a zippered pillow back but decided to favor the time saving technique of an envelope back:

Thanks to the ladies at Le Challenge for providing the inspiration to get back in my sewing room, it was getting a little dusty in there thanks to the demands of raising three small children!

Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

I am loving that bow detail on the front - gives it a really Christmas feel! I think I will have to pin this one for inspiration - great job!
