I’m replacing the smooshed back cushions of my couch with big, colorful, quilted pillows. This morning I finished my first one, a huge red flower made from some of the scraps from my Lava Meets Sea quilt.
Next up is another design from Pillow POP!, Crystallized by Angela Mitchell. I’m calling my version “Hot and Cold” because instead of using value in these half square triangles, colors are separated into warms and cools. I have so many greens that look warm to me, so in my mind I’m sorting red, orange, yellow and pink or blue, purple and green.
My pillow forms are huge and I decided to downsize the half square triangles. That means extra work, but I hope it will also make a seriously cute pillow cover. We’ll see, lots more to sew!
