I already had the Denyse Schmidt fabrics on my table from working on my Granny Square quilt, so I just used some of those. These fabrics are among my favorites anyway. Over the course of Friday and Saturday evening, it grew big enough for a 24 x 16 inches (60 x 40 centimeters) pillow cover.
I used two orange Hope Valley fabrics for the back:
A few thought on the Cathedral Window block: It's not nearly half as difficult as I thought (hm, maybe I should give free motion quilting another go...). Also, the more blocks you make, the easier it gets.

Also, if you don't like to iron, then this is clearly not the thing for you. And last but not least: I really like how this pillow turned out, but I'm fine with a pillow. I don't think I would love the look of a whole quilt like that on my bed.
Have a nice Sunday, everyone!
Update: I just found out about the linky party Monday Maker/Montag Macher my two sewing buddies Aylin and Susanne are organizing! Of course I'm linking up! Go check it out!
