Patched Skull Pillow

The photo doesn’t really do justice to this lovely pillow.  I used Amy Butler Lark fat quarters and adapted a Boo Davis pattern from ‘Whip Up Mini Quilts’ (I simplified the pattern a lot - fewer small pieces).  In Boo Davis's pattern, the pieces are all just about 1.5'x2.5', whereas my pieces of fabric are all cut in horizontal strips.  The original pattern results in a really neat zig-zag design.  Mine is just striped, but the effect is really lovely, I think.  My sister was lucky enough to get this in our family's Christmas gift exchange.

The more I look at it, the more I think that I need to make another one of these for myself!
