PMQG Swap: Wonky Stars Pillow

The Portland Modern Quilt Guild held its December meeting last night. It was really great! In October we all brought a sandwich baggy full of fabric. We then put the bags all together and we each drew one out. The idea is to take it home and make something out of it. You then bring it back to the December meeting and give it to the owner of the fabric. You are allowed to add one fabric to it. There were so many beautiful things made. Quilts, tablerunners, bags, pillows, wall hangings, it was fantastic!
I grabbed a bag full of Heather Ross scraps. I love Heather Ross fabrics, they are adorable! I knew that I wanted to make a pillow, and I’ve seen several “wonky star” pillows on Flickr that I loved, so I used them an inspiration for this project.
I was so excited about this project, I had it finished a week after I brought it home. I heard a lot of people at the meeting last night saying they had just finished theirs that day! Haha! I can’t do that, I get sooo stressed out.

The pillow is 20” x 20” and I quilted it with straight lines. I made this pillow for Lara. It’s funny because I had chosen Lara’s bag of fabric last year! I made her a Schnibbles quilt out of bright colored batiks. You can see it HERE.
I am now done with all of my Christmas gift making, you can find me relaxing and enjoying the next week now!

So you were the pillow maker! I saw that thing on the table and so wished it were mine. Lovely job!
