SLMQG Pillow Swap

In June the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild had a 20" pillow swap.  I couldn't make it that night, but last night there was a "make up" swap.

I had a mini charm pack of Coma and cracked it open to see what I could come up with.

A granny square formed itself on my floor ;)

I added in some extra green and orange and black to get my square to 22".
(Can you guess what the exterior text fabric is?)

For the quilting I did an orange peel fmq.

Ta da!!!  A cute sofa pillow :)

For the back I used Half Moon in black. 

Here it is being all cute on the guest bed.

The sad news is that no one else brought a finished pillow to swap :(

I brought my pillow home to wait for next month :) 

...or maybe, I'll just keep it!



  1. I would be glad no one showed up to swap! This is so adorable you need to keep it for yourself.

  2. Beautiful pillow Marion! I love the orange peel design for the quilting!

  3. This is so cute! I love the orange peel quilting too. Sorry no one else brought a pillow!

  4. Love the pillow and loved working with you today. My email is Loved meeting you. Loved your scrappy quilt.

  5. That is gorgeous! Great colours and great job!
