beautiful quilt. I designed this pillow to fit right in with my lovely pillows from Angela (single girl pillow) and Kerri (dream on pillow). Kerri's has a radial design and Angela's is more circular. I wanted to consider both elements in the design which led me to the classic dresden plate. I made one and then decided it needed a little more to fill the pillow up (it's a 24" form) so added a second. I used vintage sheet scraps from my stash. To incorporate the dream on (other than just using vintage sheets) and the tan solid from Angela's pillow, I choose to use the tan/brown dream on inspiration sheet I found a few weeks back. It happens to be a really close match to Angela's solid which worked out perfectly!
