If you've ever watched videos of people doing free motion quilting, it always looks so easy and fun. It might be the latter but it's most certainly not the former. I am glad I kept to a not-too-ambitious project for my first go at it.
These should fit in nicely in our breakfast nook which is currently upholstered in blue and white fabric against yellow walls, though we plan to change all of that, someday.
They are stuffed with polyfil, and backed with medium weight muslin.
The fabric is Moda Hometown and a single layer cake will make 9 of these 15" pillow tops or 4, 9 square pillows around 23" wide. You can get even more out of the layer cake if you don't insist on making all the accent squares dark red as I did.
If you want to try making these blocks yourself, here's a schematic (you can click through to get to the option to embiggen it)
The center row, with the two extra seams, will be an inch narrower than the top and bottom row so you'll have to trim down the block after assembly, to make it square.
You have been looking at the pillows, right? I mean, there wasn't anything distracting you in those photos, I hope.
It's important to focus on what matters.
