I have always liked the tumbling blocks pattern - also in fabric.
I had this idea of making one-color tumbling blocks pillows, that they would look good together.
So I started out with yellow
See? No Y-seams! That makes this sooooo much easier.
I finished the yellow pillow
...and started making a green in the same way
I chose some very colorful fish-stamp fabric for the back
And there you go! 2 tumbling block/fish stamp pillows done:
They were a present for a December birthday and they were well recieved - I do think that the recipient has more than enough pillows now, so if I want a bunch of these in different colors, I may have to make them for myself :-)
