Green Cathedral Window Pillow
My mother's birthday is this month and I decided to make her a throw pillow. While I was trying to decide sort of pattern I wanted to use it hit me, why not try making a cathedral window pillow? I have always admired cathedral window blocks, but have been afraid to try them because they look quite hard to do. Well let me tell you, they are not nearly as intimidating as they seem!
Since bright green is my mom's favorite color I decided to head that direction with the pillow. The couches at my parent's house are a dark green leather with gold accents and I wanted the pillow to work with the furniture they have so I incorporated those colors into the pillow as well. The overall result gives off kind of an autumn feel which I like since it is rapidly approaching.
After successfully making nine blocks for a pillow I can tell you that there is no reason to fret over this beautiful block. Is it a time consuming block? Yes. A tedious block? A little bit. A hard and super complicated block? No.
As for the actual pillow I should have this baby done in no time. I just need to add borders and a back and it will be finished!
