|Newtown Auction Pillow by letseatgrandpa|
Our school's Silent Auction and Gala is in two weeks. The theme this year is Sand, Sea, and Sky. Perfect. I'll make something. What? Hmmm... Something small, because, as I said, Gala is in two weeks. Let's be honest here, no way would I have a completed quilt within a week, even if I wanted to. So, how about a really cool pillow?
A perusing of Pinterest, my pins and boards, as well as everyone else's, ALWAYS provides inspiration overload. At any rate, I kept coming back to this pillow. My style - scrappy, modern, wonky, improv, and best of all, QAYG!
I haven't tried QAYG, but have wanted to since last October when several of the Scrappy Stash Quilt Along girls did so.
I was just going to wing it - my normal modus operandi - when I happened to check Cori's blog, Let's Eat Grandpa!, the creative one who designed and that pillow. Lo and behold, she has a tutorial posted. Ka-ching! Thank you Cori!
