A QAYG Pillow Beginning : :

Scrappy QAYG Pillow Making

Have you tried my Herringbone quilt-as-you-go technique for a pillow? I make so may things I can't even keep track anymore, but I'm pretty certain I hadn't! This first one started with that beautiful stack of Wanderer and Indie that I shared last week!

Wanderer + Indie

I had purchased a new-to-me size pillow form measuring 14" x 28" a few weeks back to make a new pillow for our bed and I love the length of it! To create a pillow cover to fit, I started with four pieces of batting scraps cut to measure approximately 7.5" x 14.5," plus lots of narrow fabrics strips cut into 1" to 1.5" pieces, and I started qayg-ing!

After all four pieces were finished, I simply sewed them together to create a diamond pattern. I love how scrappy it is and especially love the little touches of pink from the Indie Royal Nature in Nectar print!

All that's left to do is to quilt up two larger pieces of fabric for my pillow back and to make some binding!

I promise to have this one finished by Monday, I'm so excited to see it on our bed!

  10. Ohhh, I like this! Indie has always been a favorite line of mine (and yet I don't own any!), this combo is great!. I've yet to try your QAYG method, I should try it!

  12. I'm so in love with the fabrics that you used! The herringbone also looks lovely. I've never tried quilting myself, but a quilt as you go is the method that I want to learn first, and this looks fairly simple! I may just have to give it a try. ;)
