Zion National Park Pillow

The top is done! I'll finish the back tomorrow.

So the backstory is: At some prior vacation (2013 maybe? Not sure), Mom picked up some printed-fabric Zion National Park squares at that park. (Looks like it's the same printable fabric that I used for the LucasArts appliques.) She said "Make something for me out of it, when you have a chance."

It took a while.

I also found a pattern in 2015 that I really liked, but didn't have any fabric I liked to use with it.

Then while going through patterns and fabrics on the same day, I found them both, and it clicked.

Isn't this a great design? :D

And it could work with just about anything - custom printed fabric, novelty fabrics, photos... and I had to buy a 1/2 yard of the black and white dot fabric, so in theory I could do a bunch of these.

I also did the zigzag quilting, which was the first real time I've tried quilting to a design, which I measured and lay out with ruler and chalk pencil. It worked! :D :D

So I'm very happy with this, Mom is thrilled, and Dad thinks I could sell these if I could get more of the Zion (or other national park) fabric. ^_^
