Out of My Comfort Zone

Hexagon pillow
So I decided to make something with the experiment I created a while back.  I took this
PTS5 Experiment

and made it into a 12"x16" pillow.  I originally started this experiment because I thought I wanted to do a hexagon pillow for Pillow Talk Swap 5, but I changed my mind (see previous post for what I did make).  This has been up on my design wall begging me to make something with it so I cut it down, added some borders, quilted the dickens out of it, and made a pillow.  I'll admit, I was nervous about cutting it.  I loved it they way it was!

Between the solids, straight-line quilting, and black and white fabrics, this is WAY out of the norm for me.  I guess it is colorful, which I like.  I'm not sure what to do with it yet.  If my mom likes it, I'll give it to her (hi mom!  I know you read all my blog posts even though you don't understand some of it!  ha ha!), or I may list it on etsy, or I may swap it.  I don't know.  Sometimes it's fun to just create for sake of creating!

I love your pillow and I love that you did it just because. I think that can be great therapy sometimes!

This looks awesome! It would make a cool wall hanging.

I love, love, love it! I like it was just a giant hexagon, but the quilting is the icing on the cake. I love solid color quilts. Fantastic job!

Ooh, that was so pretty to begin with, no wonder you didn't want to cut into it! Love the conversion though
