During the Spelling Bee Sew Along, I made the Capital H, Capital G and Flower blocks from Lori\’s fabulous book Spelling Bee. My plan all along was to incorporate these blocks into a fun throw pillow for my daughter, Haley Grace. Some day I\’d like to make the complete alphabet quilt from Lori\’s book. The blocks are just too much fun!
I used fabrics from two different collections by Vanessa Goertzen (Lella Boutique for Moda): Farmer\’s Daughter and Olive\’s Flower Market. The pillow looks so fresh and pretty with my original Window Garden quilt, which Haley adopted for her bed.
This throw pillow measures 28\” wide and 15\” tall. I wanted something generously sized so that I could have a nice wide border framing the blocks. (Luckily, you can find just about any sized pillow form insert imaginable on the internet!)
And because throw pillows will likely get tossed about, the back should be as pretty as the front! I used one of my favorite pink prints from Olive\’s Flower Market for the envelope backing.
