This pillow started with 8 Kona azure triangles that I cut for another project and didn’t like. I added Kona caribbean and silver to make this simple star arrangement.
Feathers in the star points– for the second one, I tried a double spine, but I didn’t like the effect, so I went back to the single. This variation might bother me if I were to give this pillow away, but as I am keeping it, it’s all good.
Next I wanted a contrast to the feathers so I did a lot of doodling involving straight lines, before deciding on the design with pebbles up the centre in the blue star points.
Finally, the background. I like the shadow shapes made by stitching that I have seen others do (Jess of Elven Garden and Sharon at Musings of a Menopausal Melon) so how about some flying geese in the corner? The orange peels might be a little wobbly, but good. Finally a zipper back using Migratory Path by Anna Maria Horner and a binding of Kona Iron (I like using binding when the 1/4″ seam allowance needs to be maintained on a pillow).
