Super Size Castle Block Pillow

After making this pillow to match our new living room furniture, I had trouble deciding on what to do for the second pillow.  When I saw this tutorial for the super size castle block I thought this would be a good option since, while I think the block is amazing, I am probably not going to want to make an entire quilt of these.

So I cut out the pieces and they sat on my counter for three weeks.  Last week I picked the project back up and pieced them together and the project went fairly quickly and was not difficult (but don't expect to be seeing an entire quilt of y-seams from me again any time soon).

The colors are definitely a little more muted than what I normally sew with, but they match the room.

The back of the pillow is Robert Kaufman Chambray (leftover from this quilt) and it is really lovely.  I will definitely be using it in more projects in the future.

The finished size is a little bigger than 20x20".
