Description

Here's my second installment of the Pillow Pop Sew Along. I'm having so much fun making these pillows! So thanks to those who came up with the idea.

I hadn't really planned to make a Chevron pillow, but I accidentally bought the wrong size pillow form for my Metro pillow, so I just had to make the Chevron so I could use it! haha

I made the Lavender Chevron to match my Lavender Metro pillow and Lavender Lover's Knot quilt - wow that's a tongue twister.   I added the blue for more color and to match the bedroom wall, which is a pale blue. I don't necessarily see myself as a lavender person, but apparently I did in 1986!  I have since embraced the color since using the quilt on my bed for the last several years!

I forgot to add that I used the hidden zipper tutorial from Caribousmom...very easy to follow.

Carolmarie Thank you! You should make a chevron, its a pretty simple pattern - just a bunch of half square triangles. The fun part is arranging the color values!
