Quarter Log Cabin Pillow

This project started with some leftover strips from a couple of projects that were sitting on the side of my cutting table looking like they belonged together. I use the strips to make a couple of improv quarter log cabin blocks, and I liked them. I made a couple more. Together these four blocks, deliberately mismatched, create a wonky, disjointed whole. It was a casual, unintentional project that just sort of happened. Sometimes those are my favorite kind.
I made the blocks into a pillow with some straight line quilting, a mustard back with zip closer, and a flanged binding.
The plum and mustard fabrics feel like fall to me. The pillow finishes at 20" square.
