I had been wanting to try a few new techniques and I thought son #1 could use some pillows for his way too old and saggy sofa. So I put those two things together and came up with this:
I love to "repurpose" stuff and I see a lot of potential here. 2011 was the year of the pillowcase and 2012 might be the year of the throw pillow. I need to get better at hiding the stitching when I put the piping on and that crazy quilt technique is not as easy as it seems like it should be. I found myself "stitched into a corner" more than once. This offers a nice small project in between the quilts or when my block of time is too small for the next quilting step.
Now I need to find a box big enough to fit these for the trip to son #1.
