I know. I've been stuck on a pillow making theme. But it's fun and calorie free! My hexagon pillow is 16 inches x 30 inches and made with a charm pack of Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket. I wanted a pillow I can lean on while reading. And I wanted to try out a new template.
This is the acrylic template I used to cut the hexagons. It works with five inch squares. You can see how the half pieces of hexagon are cut and then pieced in a linear manner. The template works with jelly rolls, too! I've seen this process of making hexagons before and I like how easily larger blocks go together quickly.
The crocheted shawl in the background was made by a lovely friend, Barbina. I don't think she knew when she made this that one of my favorite colors is persimmon red. My little front room where I hibernate is painted the same color as the shawl. I have the shawl draped across a chair where I can admire it.
And so I leave you with a burst of color and a bit of chaos. I enjoy seeing the pillows jumbled together. I'm not worried that the House Beautiful police will be visiting any time soon!
The winner of the recent giveaway from five monkey fabrics is Kim. Congratulations!
See you soon!
