More x-factor pillows, Round 8: 2014

Round 8, still can't believe we've been at this for over a year. Each round gets a bit more interesting.
This past round was log cabins and text print- however you want to interpret that.
I grabbed my scrap bins and decided I'd keep making little wonky log cabins until I was done…. I cover a rainbow of colors, threw in a few text prints with pops of color and……. ended up with a grid-framed, wonky log cabin 9-patch-ish pillow top.

"Log Cabin Grid Lock"
19 x 19" (finished size- fits a 20" pillow form)
100% quilting cottons, various scraps with Kona Snow, Charcoal, Chinese red and Curry solids.
Aurifil 100% Mako Cotton, 50 weight for piecing and quilting
Modified Bernina stitch for overall "wiggle quilting"
Fusible Pellon Battting (top only), with hidden zipper.

It's off to my secret partner. I was sad to see this one go!

Back, hidden zipper

Front, wiggle quilting
