I was trying to figure out just what to do with 2.5" squares for a quilt, but gave up and went to my pinterest pillow board and found a couple patterns I loved and wanted to try and decided to go with that instead, I have a goal of making every single pillow in the world by the end of the year, after all!
The other side is a HST with a twist pillow pattern from the Plum and June blog.
Is there NOTHING half square triangles cant accomplish?!??! I think not!
Making half square triangles out of 2.5 inch squares is a bit tedious, I admit. I didn't spend excessive time worrying about trimming and lining things up perfectly on the front. Machine stitched both sides with some pale yellow Aurifil.
Do I need to admit the one side looks better the further away you stand from it? Shhh, I like to do that and pretend I'm on a tropical holiday. I DO think the first side is a wee bit ugly close up, and I don't care :D One more pillow accomplished!
(seriously I need to start taking things outside to photograph them in daylight, eh?)
