This was inspired by Elizabeth Hartman's pillow that she made using the center block of her Aviatrix medallion. The pillow is 20" square. I expected the piecing to be finicky and annoying, but other than having to re-do a few seams it actually wasn't too bad. I don't know if I would want to make an entire quilt of these blocks, but it was a fun project for a pillow.
The colors were pulled right from my favorite Tsuru print, Blossom Festival, which I used on the back. I love this print SO MUCH! Rashida Coleman Hale is a genius.
I finished the pillow with an envelope closure (because I didn't have a zipper long enough, oops) and I bound the edges of the pillow.
Making this pillow really makes me want to make new covers for all of my throw pillows, especially because I just got Jen Kingwell's new book and it has some amazing pillow projects. I definitely see more pillows in the near future.
