the start of another quick pillow.

I should have seen it coming. Hours after my new cushion appeared on the couch, someone in the house was begging for one too. "You can't have too many decorative cushion," he said. I know where he'd heard that before...

 

We aren't matchy matchy in our house, so this cushion looks a bit different. I used a bunch of prints that I'm calling My Cousin Chris' Bedroom 1978 which took roots with the Dear Stella Town&Country that I just bought. One of my strategies right now is to use new fabric straight away.

 

I wouldn't have chose that black border, but someone in our house insisted on it. "It will make the colors pop," he said. I know where we heard that before. I wanted to hoard the little I had left for a quilt bee, so I explained that it was special fabric. He said, "but... but it's on your pillow..." It's hard to argue with the finance department.

 

I'll give it the same haphazard quilting treatment that my pillow got and then he'll be good to roll.
