Matching Meadow Pillow - a bonus project!


I finally finished my matching Dovetail Meadow Pillow and I LOVE it!!! I had 30  4" half square triangles (3.5" finished) left over after trimming the blocks from my Dovetail Quilt. Do you remember my Dovetail Quilt??? Well here it is again below (it is one of my favorites!). Link to Dovetail Quilt blog post here.




I just love the Meadow Fabric by Camelot Fabrics and I couldn't throw away such darling fabric. Plus they were above my 2.5" minimum size for scrap saving and I had 30 of them! To make my pillow I just randomly placed 25 of the squares in a 5x5 grid layout. I flipped the triangles around in different directions....I LOVE that. I was stumped on quilting, but then with the help of Instagram friends...straightline quilting won! It was perfect and simple for this pillow! 



Now I still had 5 squares left over...no fear...I used them to piece the backing of my pillow! Yay for no waste! Plus I'm all heart eyes for the turquoise exposed zipper :)!



Thanks for reading along! Have a great day!
