This block is based on a Tennessee Waltz block; it is the same basic idea except I used some smaller squares so that I could include more color. I ended up mostly using solids with a couple squares of Lizzy House's Natural History in the center. It is hard to tell from the photos, but I used 7 or 8 shades of gray for the background.
The back of the pillow is this Flea Market Fancy print. I love how bright and happy it is, hopefully my partner likes it. I used Crazy Mom Quilt's envelope closure tutorial for the first time. I like that it uses a double layer of fabric so that the back of the pillow feels more substantial, but I think I still prefer using a zipper.
This will be off in the mail in a few days to a mystery location. If you would like to see more photos made for the swap, check out the #pcswapas on Instagram.
