I've made another pillow for my living room. Keeping with the triangle and color scheme I went with right angle isosceles triangles. Also known as the Flying Geese block. This is a different block than the previous triangles blocks I've made in that they are rectangular units rather than square.
I paper-pieced the blocks using a free pattern I found online. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I found it. Each flying goose unit is 4 inches long and 2 inches tall.
The pillow is rectangular rather than square. I originally added sashing to the top and bottom of the quilt top to make it square. I ended up taking it off because I like the triangles reaching all four edges of the quilt. The idea of a non-square pillow originally bothered me, but I've gotten over it.
I quilted triangles onto the front.
I didn't quilt the back and just used one layer of fabric so I could install a zipper. I like the zipper much better than the envelope back.
The only thing I'm undecided about is the pink binding. I picked that color to tie it into my Ducks in a Row quilt (also in the living room). The pink, yellow, and blue are all the same as the quilt.
I dropped this pillow off at the fairgrounds to be judged for the Iowa State Fair. Along with the pillow I also submitted my purple quilt,
I also submitted this outfit. The shirt, bow-tie, and suspenders are from Mini Man's ring-bearer outfit. The shorts are from last summer. The original pants in the ring-bearer outfit were stained.
Lastly, was this skeleton shirt I made for Little Man ages ago. It's never been worn (Little Man HATES it) so its in pristine condition.
Wish me luck!
