A Folk Plaid Pillow : :

Thanks for all the Scrappy Bear Paw love here, on facebook, and on my Instagram, I'm really hoping to squeeze in one more block today! Since that particular quilt plan may take a little while for me to finish, I decided it was okay to jump projects to a quick finish. Don't you love how making a quick pillow cover can give you that sense of gratification and quilty fulfillment? I do!

Folk Plaid Quilted Pillow

This one began with a square cut of my Folk Plaid print, simply quilted following the 1" grid of my buffalo check pattern to two layers of cozy batting!

The combination of all those happy reds with that little pop of Folk Plaid blue in my bear paw block reminded me of the extra long roll of Denyse Schmidt's Complex Plaid in Maple binding I had made for my You & Me Quilt.

I pulled what was left of it and a half yard of AGF's Squared Elements in Red from my stash for my pillow back. I love how these plaids look together and how this pillow matches my quilt block!


Backed in Red

I'm planning to pop this new pillow in my etsy shop to offer soon, along with many other Wild & Free makes I hope to create this year. But for now, I better get back to working on that matching quilt, Lily's waiting for me!
