Seeing Stripes


It's been a crazy week, but I somehow I was able to finish this pillow yesterday between crossing other tasks off my to-do list. I knew that I wanted to make something for my friend that included a nod to her love of tigers. I pulled out my new fat quarters of Hello Pilgrim by Lizzy House, and decided to go all the way with a pattern of stripes for the pillow itself.



This cheeky little tiger is leftover from the backing of the I-Spy quilt I made for my girls, the Escapees in Aqua print by Michael Miller. I love the way the background prints almost suggest a jungle setting. The back of the pillow is the same as the green print on the front, only in brown. The pillow has been such a hit with the family that they want me to make an entire set of pillows for the family room using Hello Pilgrim prints. I can't wait to get started.
