Over a year ago, Annee created her beautiful Patchwork Prism Quilt. I've been a little envious of it ever since. However, since I know how labor intensive quilts could be, I decided to take a short cut and just make the pillow. Anna Maria created THIS free tutorial based off of the Patchwork Prism Quilt Pattern.
At first I was going to make this a pillow to go on my couch. However, once I read the specifics of it, I realized that it creates a king size pillow sham which is 36 inches wide (or is it long?). I wasn't sure that would look just right on my couch.
While bouncing around ideas in my head as to how I should make the pillow and where I should put it, I realized that I really wanted to change my duvet cover on my bed. Remember when I made these curtains?
I still totally love them, but both of my duvet covers are too loud to go with the already loud duvet covers I have. Then I found my new bedding at West Elm, and I then I realized that the Patchwork Prism would look so fabulous sitting on such a mild background. (Fabulous in my opinion. Wink, wink.)
Sew, I set out designing my pillow. I pulled mainly all fabrics from Anna Maria stash. I have quite a few, and I only had to pull in a couple of non-AMH fabrics, but I'm not sure you could figure it out unless you really studied the pillow.
I have a king size bed, and my bed is HUGE, so the pillow almost looks small if you ask me.
Kind of makes me think it looks a little lonely.
Maybe I'll need to make it a friend or two.
I'll keep you posted if I do.
I have a pattern all cut out for a dress for Grace, but I need to go and get diapers. I think diapers might be a little more important, although it's on my list of things to do before I can go to bed to cut out the dress. Here's to hoping I get it all done!
