What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make pillows for on my bed, and was afraid that a patterned print would be too "busy" with the design on the bed spread, but that a solid color would be too "heavy." So I decided to frame the print with the quilting cotton to balance it out.
What are you most proud of?
The French seams! I looove them, and think I'll do French seams on every project I can, now :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Measure two or three times. If you're like me, that still won't be enough ;) But it's a pillow, so you can always make it smaller or add patches on for interest (or to make it bigger ;)). It's pretty difficult to completely ruin it-- even if you accidentally cut it straight down the middle, you'll just end up with two smaller accent pillows!
