Description

This is my modified cosmos pillow for the March Pillow Pop sew along. I made the hexagons half the size they were supposed to be and cut the pillow 16". I used scraps of sateen and voile I had in my stash. The light blue sateen on the back was going to be the front but DD said it was too plain for her. She still wanted the light blue sateen worked into the pillow so I used it as the backing. I used AMH voile for the outside hexagons and the front of the pillow. I fussy cut the flower sateen as best I could and used them as the centers. Not my favorite color combo, but I'm using my stash and DD loved it.

Wanted to thank Mymble (Margaret) for using voile and smaller hexie's in her beautiful pillow, since that's what inspired my pillow as well. Thank you!!!

Oh, voile! It looks like it'll be so soft and comfy!! Cute fussy cuts!

Joke That's funny my DH said Oh, its so soft and fluffy, I like that. LOL I don't really love the colors but my DD picked them and she is my little creative artist.
danadane thanks, I got the idea from Mymble for the smaller hexies.

Carolmarie thanks, the sateen wasn't too bad but the voile gave me some issues trying to get the hexies to fold over. I used my clover clips and took them out as I sewed which helped.
Caribousmom thank you! I love AMH fabrics
HawkFan thanks, yes she does.
