I’ve made another pillow for Z’s grandpa this year. He loves the other one I made him, and I thought he could use a second one. Most of the scraps are from the quilts I made for Z last year and the year before, so the colors for this pillow are still patriotic but the prints are actually more nautical.
I started with 3″ squares organized in a four by six layout:
I added 2″ wide red borders. (I made them a little too wide for the pillow form.) I’d actually had another border planned, but I did my math wrong and cut the pieces too short.
For the back, I fussy cut this center scrap, which is leftover from the Storm at Sea quilt I made for Z. The white fabric is leftover from his “What So Proudly We Hail” quilt. It’s got little sea shells on it.
