scrap happy pillow

Another day, another pillow. (Hee hee!)
This one is pieced much like my scrap happy purse.
I like it in pillow form very much!
It uses strips that start about 1" wide or so....
because I just can't seem to throw anything away.
(I guess that is a good and a bad thing.)
It measures about 20" square.
Luckily I have a brand new pillow form to stuff inside it. :)

This is scrap project #49/101.  (Yay!!!!)

Nice finish! I need to make another one of those purses-very cool!

Beautiful! Aren't you glad that you kept all those little bits? I have a hard time throwing anything away as well...but they do come in handy.

I love it!

So happy and fun! I feel compelled to use my scraps too, it's amazing what you can do with even the smallest pieces!

Love it! The colors are so bright. Speaking of little bits saved, I have the 1/4 circles in white leftover from my Retro Flowers quilt. I know I should be able to do something with them. Any ideas? I keep thinking if you had them you might be able to figure out something to do with them.

I love it! Another awesome pillow. Who needs to actually sit on the couch anyway! :)

I have the pillow bug too - I can't get rid of this bug, it is like a disease! In a good way. I love your pillow! Fun, fun, fun! and pretty! I too keep everything, down to the smallest snippet, so your projects are a great source of inspiration.

Me encanta, es una manera muy bonita de aprovechar las telas que tenemos por ahi. Muy alegre y vistoso. Felicidades. Besos

It looks bright and cheerful - fabulous! To think that a lot of quilters would have thrown those fabric pieces away ... a cushion cover almost for free :)

Linda said...

As always, LOVE IT! :)

We have a snow day today. I may have to have my kids hand me random strings to sew a scrappy slab after I get some knitting WIPs done. You inspire me so much.

Kay said...

I absolutely love this!!! I can see me making one really soon as cushions are my thing for this year.
