Scrappy Throw Pillow

I’ve been saving all of my little leftover triangles from making stitch & flip blocks for the Inkling quilt pattern and converting them into all sorts of fun things.

However, this proves a bit more difficult for all the other fabric swatch guides on the market,Continue reading
