basic binary pillow

I had so much fun with my Basic Binary mini quilt that I decided to keep going and make this pillow.  I made it for a friend who was such a sweet cheerleader on Instagram as the mini came together.  She and her family recently moved into a new home so I thought I would make this pillow for her:



The grid of tiny 1" x 1" squares spells out their last name.  I offset it in linen and quilted it, adding some hand stitching in Perle cotton.




On the back- the same eyeglass print on my mini, and I used the same binding as well.   I did a zipper enclosure using the tutorial on Svetlana's site.


She was surprised and loved it!  I think I am going to make a habit of these....

that is fab! I love the way it looks so modern, with the hand stitching too, and that it actually means something

A very lucky friend indeed! I still can't articulate what that pillow means to me because I know I am one of MANY friends who love you. It makes me smile every day to see it on my favourite chaise! Xo
