Rainbow scraps are still a big part of the sewing I do for fun. And this pillow was super fun to make. A two sided scrappy rainbow pillow block in HST's and flying geese. The top side of the pillow echos a granny square block but on a bigger scale and different color layout. I only had so many HSTs to work with so this pattern came about. I like how the red draws your eye around.
The over sized flying geese blocks were made with triangles of the same size yielding a robust rectangle. I like how it shows off the prints just a little bit more. Around the central block are more scraps in the same colors as the adjoining geese blocks. I love how this blends in the pillow and makes it bigger.
The quilting is simple stipple on the HST side and on the geese side simple outlines paired with wavy lines around the boarder. I used a nice big zipper to aid in the easy up keep of these beauties. This was also the first time I used my Go! Baby fabric cutter. I used the 4" finished HST die to cut all the triangles. Super easy for fabric scraps but a lot of waste to use clean cut yardage.
Along with the rainbow pillow I made a blue and red one to match the living room; it's comfy but not as cute. I think one more pillow is in order and that one will be another rainbow of some sort! And there will probably be a tutorial involved for that rainbow goodness.
