A New Pillow

I am into a wave of pillow making, lately. There are so many blogs out there in the blogosphere with great tutorials of how to make good looking pillows. Crazy Mom Quilts is a great source of inspiration. I decided to make a version of her Contact Print Pillow .

I chose to arrange my 35 different color squares in a rainbow setting, and I think that this gives a very nice effect. The quilting is straight line using my walking foot.

I found a fun print for the back, and I made an envelope closure for the pillow.

This is the second pillow cover I have completed this year, and if I continue this rate of one new pillow every month, I will get 12 by the end of the year (!) There is not enough room for that in my sofa!

Well, I think I will stop long before I reach 12, but it is nice to get new colors and designs on the couch!
