February - Pillow Pop QAL - Life Aquatic

I wanted to chose one of the two pillows by Heather Bostic, the compiler of the book Pillow Pop, for our first QAL. I choose her 18"x 18" pillow for it's simple and easily sewn design. I wanted it to be one people of all skill levels would be able to sew and one that would be great to raid our scrap bins. 

If you haven't gotten your book yet, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on fabric requirements. You can use any colors that compliment your style. I will give the pattern for the following months on the finishing week's blog post for each month.

Fabric Requirements:
Aqua: assorted scraps equaling 1/4 yard. (44 : 2-1/2" squares)
Tangerine: scraps in assorted tones for cross (5 : 2-1/2" squares)
Linen: 1/4 yard 
Backing: 1/2 yd decorator fabric
Batting: 20" x 20" piece
Muslin: 20" x 20" piece
Pillow Form: 18" x 18"

Other Items:
Sewing Machine
Rotary cutter & Cutting mat
Iron & Ironing Board
Basting pins
Zipper (if you choose to make a zippered pillowcase)

Is the QAL going to do a new pillow every month?
