This is one of those projects where I truly enjoyed making this every single step of the way. The pattern comes from Rachel of Wooden Spoon Quilts. She has an excellent tutorial for these raspberry kiss blocks you can find here.
This pillow is for my bestie, and her favorite color combo is pink and green. I loved that this project was scrap friendly and I had so much fun digging through my bins finding all shades of pink and green fabrics. I also loved that it got me busting out some long hoarded low-volume fabrics. I tried color blocking my X's at first as you can see in the first photo but the more blocks I made the more I liked alternating the colors. Then I tried for an ombre effect but then decided against it. I like the way the values are thrown around randomly. It gives the pillow a little sparkle. I was originally going to make an 18" pillow with the 4x4 layout above… until I ended up buying a 24" pillow form and was happy to have an excuse to make more :)
