Since I've been making all these pillows the last two weeks, when Anna at Noodlehead posted about the Blogger's Pillow Party that Stitched in Color is having each month, I figured I needed to enter! My favorite pillow so far? This one!
I posted about it last week when I was finishing up my sister's pillows. I'd been sitting at my computer in the kitchen that morning, thinking about different ideas for other pillows, when I refocused my eyes and saw what I wanted to make. I'd been half staring out the window and my brain tuned in to the trellis on the fence.
That was it! I pretty much jumped up and ran to the sewing room to sketch out the pillow and get measurements. I went with a 3" finished square and 1.5" finished sashing. I picked out twelve fabrics from Kate Spain's Central Park layer cake for this pillow, cutting 2 squares of each - one for the center, then one cut in half diagonally for around the edges. I'm keeping the other half square triangles for a future, yet-undetermined, project. The top came together easily and I ended up loving this pillow more than I thought I would!
It's living on my couch at the moment, since that's where I will see it most often, but it also goes with my bedroom, too, so it'll probably move between the two spots depending on how many more pillows I make!
