Amy Butler Big Dot Pillow

I decided to make the Big Dot pillow from inStitches with lots of little leftover fabric chunks. I really like the way it turned out. I still haven't found any great fabric stores in Ann Arbor so I had to go to JoAnn's for the gray cotton on the back. I was pleased to find a small amount of solid-colored, organic fabrics!

I made a 20" b 20" pillow instead with 7" diameter circles. I used metalic thread to applique, which looks good in the end, but generally caused more trouble then maybe it was worth (hint: metallic thread = metallic thread needle). Check out Amy Butler's Inspiration page. Enjoy.
