Description

 This is the "Cosmos" pillow from Pillow Pop and one of the March choices for the Sew along here on Threadbias.  It is truly a scrappy project...I just pulled fabrics from my scrap bag...and my only editing was to try to have some pink or purple in each fabric. It has been a learning process for me not to over edit for scrappy projects...just let it happen  (60's Home Ec., 70-80's Laura Ashley gal and 90's Martha Mom- well can you blame me????)  In any case, It was fun to just sort of see what happened, and I love the back especially for that and a chance to use my little piece of Little Folks voile I had leftover in the scrap bag. 

I cut my hexies with my Accu Quilt Go cutter so the size is a wee bit smaller but I actually didn't like the size in the sample...so worked out fine.

I lined the front of the pillow with batting and did a loose wavy quilting on it too.


 Fun project!

Oh I love the back and the front. That light leaf fabric on the front is beautiful, and I love all the fabric on the back. Great job on this!

I thought about using my Go die - you got good results. Love your scrap bag.

Skynme Thank you- the light leaf fabric is actually a Joann's- from their regular quilting line- I needed grey for some decoupage eggs, and this was a leftover piece- I'm not always a fan of the quality of their fabrics, but this one was nice:)
omaTam Thanks so much- yes Spring is definitely welcome here:) Readerowl Thanks - I do love the convenience of the Go:)...and I am really hoping to get a scrappy quilt made...just need to make more scraps!!!
cally68 Thanks- that was about the sum of all my rosy pink/fuschia fabrics there- glad it worked to use them all together:)
True Thanks Mary- it was fun to just see what the scrap bag had to offer:)
