a kaleidoscope pillow

Hey friends!  How has it been a week since my last post?  I guess I've been busy sewing and not blogging.  I'll try to do a little better.  Anyways, I wanted to share a pillow I made last month.

You know how much I love my kaleidoscope quilt, so I had to try my hand at making a pillow. I made smaller squares using Katie Jump Rope from Denyse Schmidt, and came up with this pillow!

It is 18" finished with a envelope enclosure for the backing.  I thought about putting in an invisible zipper, but I love the selvedge and wanted to include that.  As always, it makes a nice clean finish rather than actually creating a hem. 


Be back soon!  xoxo Angela
