Friday Finish - A Birthday Pillow

My friend's little girl turned three a couple of weeks ago.  She and I met in a birthing class at the hospital, and I've been making Mati handmade birthday and Christmas gifts ever since she was born.
I asked my friend what Mati's favourite colours were, and she said blue and light blue, which I was not expecting.  I wanted to give her what she likes, but I didn't want it to be as masculine as this pillow I did a few months ago for my friend's little boy was.  The solution was a scrappy blue patchwork - blues, but with other colours in the mix as well.
I used the same alphabet paper piecing pattern as with the other pillow, and I really enjoy making the letters.  I will be doing some more paper piecing in the future - maybe some New York beauty patterns.
I really love how it turned out, and my friend was really happy too.  Now Olivia's asking for a pillow with her name on it for her birthday!
