The wonky cross quilt block has been on my to-do list for ages! (See? I'm practically the last person to try this block!) So whilst trying to figure out a second pillow design for my living room, I figured HEY why not try it? Its quick, wonky, and a nice contrast to the other pillow... Octagonol Orb which is very precise and angular.
I rather adore the pebble quilting!
It took 3 bobbins of thread to do a 19"x19" area, but who cares? The pebbles soften up the blunt angles and contrast nicely. See the one block with a blue border? Yeah. That block ended up over an inch too small and I was NOT going to start over so I tried to salvage it with a border. I think it works!
The back! One of my favorite parts about this pillow (also pebble quilted.)
A 20" pillow form is stuffed in this not quite 19" cover... so its bulging at the back opening. I may end up taking out some stuffing, OR adding a button. I have a feeling some stuffing is going to go. Much less labor intensive.
I thought I should take a shot without the pillow form so its not all poofy and un-square. The binding is the same fabric I used for our curtains. Sandi Henderson, I love your fabric!
This now completes my "I MUST make two pillows for the living room!" phase.
