Finally got my "circle square" Pillow finished (added the binding and the actual pillow to make the pics look nicer.
I really enjoyed making this pillow. I strip pieced some cute scraps, cut my desired circle (using a dinner plate as a template) then it to the same black fabric as the headboard using a zig zag stitch.
I got the idea for this pillow after seeing a blog post for making a quilt that looked like this. I toyed around with the idea of making a "hugs and kisses" (x's and o's) quilt using the o's in this form, and I wanted to practice to see how difficult/easy it would be before I went out and got new fabric for the quilt. About 2 years ago I started quilting by making a full-size bed quilt. I bought WAY too much fabric and have been making things out of its scraps ever since (most projects out of these scraps became scraps themselves). I LOVE this pillow though and it currently resides on top of that quilt in our spare bedroom.
I also cut a few small circles and thought I might add one to the back of this sham, but perhaps make a pillow of "bubbles" in the same idea as this one. Makes me smile just thinking about a bubble pillow.
Hope you get inspired to make PILLOWS - as apparently I am going to be on a pillow kick for a bit (I have about 7 new ideas added to my "to make" list)
I decided to submit to the Blogger's Pillow Party - go check out the other submissions!
