Oh how I love a good quilted pillow! All the fun of quilting in a quick, easy format! I made this last year for a swap and while looking through photos I realized that I hadn't posted it! So here it is, my off-kilter pinwheel pillow!

Here is an in progress shot, this is the point where I thought, this is getting christmassy... And so i added the brown polka-dot applique to cut down on the red and add some more texture!

The off-kilter pinwheel blocks are so simple too! I cut 5 inch squares and then laid a white and a colored square on top of one another and then made a slightly angled cut through both of them, then paired them with their color and angle opposite and sewed them together!

Wow. For cutting them the way you did, your angles are very consistent. I would have all sorts of angles if I did it. Cheesy Great job!

Same here.

This is so cute!  I didn't even think "Christmas" until you pointed it out down thread, so the brown polka dots really worked.

thanks everyone!

I was actually TRYING to be a little bit wonky, but even still of course all of my angles ended up the same! I tried to make a crazy quilt once and it almost killed me.... for some reason i can only do straight lines!

I have the opposite problem.  My straight lines still become wonky occasionally.  Smiley

I just love this pillow.  It looks like it was a lot of fun to make and the fabrics are great.
