Red White and Blue Pillow

I have been using my orphan blocks to make pillows for our couch. It helps to brighten up our room and our couch. I also like the fact that it is small enough to help me practice my freemotion quilting.

I did not intend to quilt this floral pattern, but after ripping the stitches out so many times, I decided to do this floral pattern. I started with a flower and started building it out sort of echoing it as I went along.

Here's a close-up of the quilting.

This is what the lining looks like. I wish this was on the backside. The quilting shows up very well. I've got one more orphan block to turn into a pillow :-)

Have a wonderful weekend! It's time for me to face the dreaded ugly quilt to get it done.
