I took a breather from my bag obsession and made a pillow. It's actually a project that I started at least a month ago. One of those things that took about a half an hour to finish, and yet it sat there for weeks.
I started this log cabin pillow as a way to use some of the green fabrics I had accumulated and also just to try the technique. I went about it very roughly, just sewing on strips and trimming as I sewed. I really didn't even have a size in mind. I love that wonky log cabin look (and it's really easy). I added some Ginger Bliss fabric as a border and backed it with a table runner that really was too small for my table. I cut it envelope-style so I could take the cover off for washing and so I wouldn't have to hand sew the opening closed (I saw another week on the shelf if I added another finishing step). Using the table runner was easy since I didn't have to hem the sides. Anyway, I like the pillow on the black club chair, however, I was a bit dismayed this morning when I noticed that someone had actually sat on it and squished it. Occupational hazard if you're a family room pillow, I suppose.
