After I made this pillow I really wanted to try something else. - I saw this pillow by Josh and Paise I think it is absolutely amazing. I wanted to see if I could make one similar. The process was somewhat frustrating - I ripped out my first attempt as the proportions were off.
I wanted more pale yellow and less of the medium orange - I spent almost 2 hours carefully ripping out and redoing the center to move it all a quarter inch. I have less of the medium orange, more of the bright orange and just a tad bit more of the pale yellow. IF I was to make this pillow again I would make more changes to my measurements..... However I am not in a hurry to make another one of these anytime soon.
I used the Rosco Color Stack the color is a little off in this picture - I was just so happy the sun was out. I even got to spend some time on this chair over the weekend working on my EPP project.
Elizabeth Hartman posted on Instagram the other day and thought it would be fun to try. I then did straight line quilting on the back. I am having a hard time giving up this pillow.
I have a friend who just moved away and I wanted to make her something for her new home. She told me her new living room is going to be all cream and grey. - The joys of not having teenagers who destroy living areas.
Below is where my daughter left off on her pillow. I am hoping I can get her to finish it soon.
I only have one more pillow to make this week - at some point I thought it would be a good idea so EPP 120 hexagons together, then decided I wanted to inset the whole thing within a larger hexagon. I had to order more fabric as I made a cutting error. I hope to show pictures of that pillow soon. I have reached the stage where I just want it done.
I am linking up with Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.
