Description

I was inspired to make these pillows when I saw these fantastic Chevron pillows on the Let's Eat Grandpa blog. I like the use of two colorways, but decided to put a binding on mine.

I made these pillows for my niece who is in college. My sister (+dtscrapper ) had made Abby a quilt for her bed and so I asked her to send me some scraps from that quilt so I could coordinate the pillows. I decided to use primarily greens and pinks - with a splash of yellow so it wouldn't feel like Christmas!

The pillows measure 18 X 18.

The backs are pieced and I did a hidden zipper to make them reversible.

The quilting is a simple echo of the chevrons.

I couldn't resist using some of Bonnie and Camille's Scrumptious fabric for the binding - a red and salmon diagonal stripe that coordinated perfectly.
