Arcadia String Pillows

String Pillow

I’m checking something off of my list! Today I finished the string block pillows. As I mentioned in my last post, I saw these on Ashley from Film in the Fridge’s blog and *needed* them for my couch. I just love how they turned out! They are 18″ squares. I made the string blocks 7.5″ squares and then added the white sashing around the finished block. For the back, I just added a stripe from my Arcadia jelly roll. I’m hoping my husband likes these when he sees them tonight. (He can be a bit picky!)

    Pretty pillows! This is a great way to try string piecing on a small scale – I might just have to give it a try!
