kindness pillow

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I finished my kindness pillow cover yesterday. It's definitely not perfect, but I am so glad that I took the time to make this project. It will be nice to have a visible daily reminder of my word for 2017. I purchased a king size pillow for the insert. It's a snug fit, but I managed to avoid popping any seams while stuffing it into the pillow cover. Hurray for that!
This solid fabric is something that I picked up at the thrift store for a couple of bucks a few months ago. I knew that I'd find a use for it someday. It's heavier than normal quilting cotton, so it makes a great pillow backing. I love the added pop of color to the back! This is the first time (ever!) that I used a zipper enclosure on the back of a pillow. It was so easy, thanks to this great tutorial by Svetlana. I'm glad to have that skill in my repertoire now.
I quilted the pillow with a 1/2" diamond grid. I love the texture and stability that the quilting adds.
The pillow finishes at 18 1/2" x 32".
Because I know someone will ask....the letters are something that I drafted up for this project. I've been thinking it over, and I'm going to attempt to write up a pattern for the whole alphabet....even though it could take me forever! :)
Now, it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday! Have a great weekend. xo
