Quilt Lab Blog Hop: Scattered

I'm so happy to be contributing to Ali's Quilt Lab Blog Hop today. I'm sharing my rendition of her Scattered quilt pattern. I chose to make a patchwork pillow because everybody knows how much I adore patchwork.

Ali was kind enough to work out all the math for me. I used this chart to help me convert her gorgeous quilt into an 18" pillow. I used block 6 for mine.

Instead of using scrappy squares, I went through all my green scraps and created a green scrappy background. I used Medrona Road text for all my squares. I really love the outcome!

For the back, I used my favorite method. I love an exposed zipper and have been using that for all my pillows lately.

I loved this pattern. It was so fun getting to work with Ali's book, Quilt Lab. She used an awesome chemistry book feel for it and I think it's absolutely genius! All the patterns in it are so creative.
