D9P Pillow

We bought a new mattress this week, which meant fresh linens. I went with a white matelasse spread so I can add color in pillows and throws. I'm loving the beachy colors of summer- sand and sea glass.

I started a pillow today from this tutorial at the Moda Bake Shop. It's a mini disappearing nine patch. I cut 2.5" squares from my low volume scraps and sea glass solids.

After chopping up the nine patches and assembling, I have a piece that is almost 18" square. I'm considering quilting pebbles in the low volume sandy background. I have to psych myself up for it!

I'm nursing the boy back to health following the extraction of his wisdom teeth. He'll be fine in a few days. Have a great weekend!

Very pretty! I love all the little pops of colour against that low volume. You can do it - the FMQ! Just practice first, and try to relax and enjoy!

Gorgeous low volume cushion top and I love your idea for the quilting!! Hope your son has a speedy recovery...I think my boy ate 20 lbs of mashed potatoes the week he had his wisdom teeth removed :)

Oh that turned out gorgeous! Pebbling would look wonderful! Although I understand the "psych" up. it is my least favorite fmq. All the travel stitching, which I'm not good at, make mine messy!!

I'm looking up the tutorial now. Love the pops of sea glass!

Speedy recovery Pete!
