Okay so you've seen this pillow before, but I'm entering it in the February Blogger's Pillow Party over at Stitched in Color. Each month you can enter one pillow you've made (in the last three months), and a guest celebrity judge will choose a winner! February's judge is the fabulous Rita at Red Pepper Quilts!! Did I mention the winner receives a fantastic prize?
I made this pillow as part of my monthly Pillow Panache class at Quilt in Joy (the LQS where I work and teach). Wonky is really difficult for me. My brain is hard-wired for symmetry and order, as much as I'd like to pretend otherwise :)
My first attempt at wonky last year was less than successful (in my eyes) so my original blocks ended up shoved under my cutting table in a pile of discards...
But when I discovered them while cleaning (acckkkk!) I decided maybe the star wasn't too bad, and maybe I should give it another go.
With the white background and new Amy Butler fabrics, I now have some wonky stars that I really love :) And I discovered that when the photo is viewed as a thumbnail shot, the stars seem to be spinning! Completely unplanned, but what a bonus!
If you've got a favorite pillow to enter, head over here for the details :)
