I found a few spare minutes to finish my Make it Sew Modern-Inspired pillow!
Weeks later I was looking at Diary of a Quilter at this post about the new book coming out, and it had the same exact picture of the same pillow! I hadn't even known it was in a book, but now that I think of it, anything pictured in a magazine is going to have the pattern available somewhere, or else it wouldn't be in the magazine. If you want to make a pillow like this, you can buy the book here. I made mine with satin-backed shantung and I LOVE it. Mine is 16", I don't know how big the one in the book is. I'm glad I've finally finished it.
I think it does look great on my couch. =)
