Description

This pillow is the challenging pillow for September in the Pillow Pop group.

It is a pretty straight forward pillow which uses scraps to make up the flying geese blocks. I didn't have all the colors of the rainbow, but decided that didn't matter and substituted pink and gray in for the yellow and purple.

In the book, the pillow is supposed to finish to fit a 16" pillow insert...but mine came out a smidge larger and fits nicely over an 18" insert.

I quilted it with echoing around the geese and then straight lines, varying the straight line widths.

The back is pieced and has a hidden zipper.

Instead of putting on a binding, I chose to sew right sides together, and zigzgging to finish the seams which I think goes well with this really "clean" pillow. This one is a perfect match up with the Don't Be Square pillow I did earlier this year. Both pillows use Bonnie and Camille fabrics and lots of white.

True Thanks, Mary! I had fun making this one!
Carolmarie Thank you, Carol! I agree - everyone puts their own individual "stamp" on the pillow...I am getting where I can tell who made each pillow without looking at the name!

Quilterinmotion Thanks, Marsha :) If was fun to make. I basically did the recommended quilting which was in the book...I like how it makes it feel like the geese are flying :)
