  5. I noticed the pink letters right away and thought "What! Where is the red-yellow-blue theme?" (I understood after reading a little further.)

    Have fun with the CAL! I will be watching with interest in case I ever want to host one.

  6. I absolutely adore that pillow. It is so beautiful! I am looking forward to your CAL! I already know at least one of my daughters (probably both) will want a petite one for themselves!

  13. What size is this pillow? I'm curious as to what size the granny rose squares are. I really like how the 4 rose squares look together...very dainty and sweet. I am also considering 9 squares. Trying to plan out my CAL variation and am trying to figure out what sized pillow I would need.

  14. Hello Petunia! The pillow is in California now; however, I believe it is approximately 11" x 11". Each square is a little over 5" x 5". Have a good day!
