Flying Rainbow Pillow

Are you getting sick of seeing pillows? I hope not, because there are a few months left in the year and I am still Pillow Popping with my group over on Threadbias!

The “challenging” pillow for September is Flying Rainbow – a scrap friendly project that uses lots of white and clean quilting lines.

PillowPop.FlyingRainbow.Front0001I used lots of my Bonnie and Camille scraps – mostly from their collection Scrumptious – and decided not to worry that I would not have a yellow and purple goose…instead I substitute with pink and gray and am very happy with how it turned out!

PillowPop.FlyingRainbow.Side0001I quilted this per the recommendation in the book which echoes the geese and then has varying width straight lines moving horizontally across the pillow giving the illusion of the geese flying.

The back is pieced (I found a nice big piece of some Happy Go Lucky fabric for the bottom) and sports a hidden zipper.

PillowPop.FlyingRainbow.Back0001This pillow fits on an 18″ insert and makes a nice match with the Don’t Be Square pillow I made earlier this year.

PillowPop.FlyingRainbowWithSquaresPillow0001I could see a whole bunch of these scrap happy pillows with their cloud of white on a bed, couldn’t you?

Please follow and like the blue thistle
