Sleeping Porch Pillow

I recently had the pleasure of working with Heather Ross's latest line, Sleeping Porch.  This line is cotton lawn, something I haven't had very much experience working with.  Lucky me, it was a dream to sew up.  It sews as easily as quilting cotton and is oh so incredibly soft.  

I started a quilt with this bundle, but the quilt is on hold while I decide how to back it.  The scraps were begging to be sewn up into a pillow in the meantime though.  I used 3.5 inch squares surrounded by 2 inch strips (unfinished measurements).  

The strawberry fabric in the last picture is not part of this line, but is a (hoarded, cough cough) print from her Briar Rose line.  It matches this line perfectly though and so I used a little strip to back the pillow.  

I finished up this pillow and sent it to a friend on the other coast where I am sure it is being enjoyed.  Yay for quilty gifts and for turning scraps into something beautiful.
