As soon as I saw these pillows, I couldn't wait to make one (or 2)!
I have a bunch of Kona solids left over from the Bottled Rainbows Quilt Along, and this was the perfect little project to use some of it!
This tutorial is so nicely done. Great photos and instructions.
I couldn't get the templates to print to the right size, though, so I just used my 30 degree triangle ruler, and cut 7 1/2 inch wedges.

The chair in Lexi's room is an old chair my parents had in our living room when I was growing up. It's super comfy! I had planned to have it recovered, but the yellow (probably was known as harvest gold, or something like that in the 70's!) actually fits in ok in this Rainbow Lover's bedroom.
The quilt on the back of the chair was made by my lovely and talented friend Amber, as a baby gift. The sheep (aka Marshmallow) is from this tutorial at Purl Bee. The girls and I are planning to make a few more of these for Easter gifts -- it's a super fun, easy, and kid friendly project (I just use fleece or soft minky fabric instead of wool, as the tutorial suggests!).
|Of course, Holly needed one, too!|
