Early spring blossom pillow

I wanted to make a pillow for my garden furniture. Drops Paris yarn was perfect to use. I crocheted a Early spring blossom square with crochet hook 5 mm. When I finished the square it measured 11 x 11 inches.

I was going to attach the square to a pillowcase that was 19 x 19 inches, so I wanted to make the square bigger. I wanted it to go fast so I crocheted a lot of half double crochet, double crochet and at the end treble crochet around the square.

When I finished crocheting I fastened the square with pins to the pillow case before I sewed it on. I sewed with large stitches, I wanted to see a quick result! I think the pillow will look great on my garden furniture. Longing for summer now!
