patchwork pillow

I know, another pillow.  Sorry if I’m boring you.  I thought it would be nice to make this one for my brother and his wife’s nursery.  With all the scraps leftover from the other nursery projects, I figured this pillow would get a lot of use and fit right in. 

Just a simple square patchwork, with an invisible zipper again (I’m hooked).  It’ll be a fun one to throw on the rocking chair and when it gets spit up or projectile vomit on it, zip it off and it’s ready for the wash! 

I’ve got a project I’ve been slaving (yes, really, well almost) for the past few days and I’m really excited to show you, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow!

    Gorgeous pillow and I love the fabric choices. You’ve just reminded me that buried deep in my stash is some fabric that I could use on one of my next projects – I’d forgotten all about it!
