This Gifty Galore project is from the Pillow Pop book by Heather Bostic. This book is full of fun and fabulous pillows, and perfect for scraps! There were quite a few pillows that caught my eye, but I really liked the bold graphic look of the "A Bunch of Crosses" pillow and knew it would go well with the cider-sipping feeling of Sun Kissed Harvest.
