During Snowmageddon I figured we would lose power so I whipped up a couple of extra blocks to use for small pillows to coordinate with the quilt. Since my quilt top was smaller than the one in the book I had a number of left over squares.
I had stitched around each block in orange and in purple around an orange center. I liked how it looked that I used that same quilting on the full quilt.
I didn’t have two small pillow forms sitting around so I decided to stuff the pillows with a portion of the enormous amount of scrap batting. Seriously, so much left over from years of sewing that I didn’t cut down into potholder squares.
I trimmed the blocks and backed them with left over green fabric from the quilt back. Both sides were sewn right side together and then flipped to create the pillows. Then each little pillow was stuffed full of batting. This started my recent pillow obsession.
Two cute pillows to coordinate with a bright and cheery quilt. Wonder who will be the lucky little girl to get this set?
