I don't know about you, but I am SO glad it is Friday. Today, I actually have a finish to share with you. A quick gift was needed and I remembered how fun the holiday llama pillow was to make, so I decided to make another pillow cover using this same tutorial.
I started with four leftover linen triangles (still have plans for the others) from the spiderweb mini quilt I'm still working on (almost done...just needs to be quilted) and added wide strips of the Riley Blake Challenge fabric around the three sides to make the blocks.
The scraps of Riley Blake fabric were put through my AccuQuilt Go cutter using the triangle die. I pieced those triangles for the outer border leaving a strip of linen on two sides. Linen is also used for the inner border.

For Christmas, my mom gave me an Aurifil thread set and the spool of #5011 is a perfect match for the linen which is what I used to quilt organic lines using my walking foot.
For the backing I used a print from IKEA which I love and bought by the bolt but forgot to photograph ;-) The pillow cover measures 22" square and I stuffed it with a 24" pillow form to make it soft and squishy.

This one finish counts towards my Riley Blake Challenge (a little past the deadline), Amy's Pillow Collective, Amanda's finish it up Friday and a gift for a friend!
I'd say that's sewing smart ;-)
Happy Friday and happy stitching! Thanks for stopping by,
