Crazy Pillow Tops

Skater Girl's camera is officially dead, and mine is spending the weekend in a Junior High locker.  In bright light, however, the cell phone pictures aren't too bad.

Here's how I spent my Saturday morning.  This one is destined to be a pillow sham for a standard pillow.

And this will be it's partner square throw pillow.  It was deemed "Crazy Awesome" by Skater Girl...but then again she might be sucking up (for obvious reasons).
Dritz Tracing <em>Wheel</em> - SerratedI have to admit that I may never "eyeball" seams again.  I marked the 3/4" lines with a dressmaker's wheel.  I'm not even sure why I have one of these in the house as I'm a horrible seamstress.   (I may have bought it when I made my leather chaps.) worked like a dream.  I've never had straight stitching lines like this before.

Well, it's pretty nice. I love the color and the quilt design. It's perfect for a pillow. Love it!

I love how you've used the scraps to make the fabric for these pillows. Very stunning!

I really love this. I like pink but don't live with any of it.
