New ideas

Check off another UFO!!!   This pillow started out life as a table runner, but just didn't turn out the way I wanted it.  So it became a UFO and was in serious danger of being tossed out.  But it has a new life as a pillow, and now I actually like it.

The half square triangles are all leftovers from trimming some large star blocks in a little boy's quilt I made a couple of years ago for a cousin. I just hated to throw away perfectly good triangles, and now they have grown up to become something new instead of scraps.


  1. I hate throwing away those triangles, too. Congratulations on using them up. The pillow is very pretty.

  2. I never know what to do with the "waste" HSTs. Your solution is wonderful - nice finish!

  3. I keep them too... you made them into a beautiful AND useful item. Way to go!
