WIP Wednesday: Family Room Pillow

I bought a house in October and I've discovered it takes me a very long time to make certain decorating decisions.  Like picking pillows for my family room couch.  I've been pinning and shopping for at least 2 months now!  Ridiculous.  

I finally decided to make my own because I'm a) cheap and b) tired of looking at (expensive) store pillows that aren't exactly what I want.  The other day I sifted through my Pillow pinterest board and chose Alissa Haight Carlton's pillow pattern as my first test subject.  My living room colors are navy, coral/orange, and grey with a little preppy green mixed in.  As I was looking through my stash, my beloved Katie Jump Rope that's been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long jumped out at me and I thought, what the heck.  Let's cut that!  Why not see my favorite fabric everyday on my couch?  Besides, it only needed a little bit.  Plenty left over!

So here's the front, almost all quilted.  I need a zipper and back panels quilted before I'm finished, so it's a WIP I started to avoid working on my Modern Quilt Guild Michael Miller challenge project due next Wednesday at our guild meeting.  Another day, another story :)
