Aqua "Muskoka" Pillow

Here is an 18 x 18 patchwork pillow -- my first patchwork. The back is unbleached linen. A friend called it a "Muskoka" pillow. I had fun making it and although the strips didn't line up perfectly (thanks to my lassez-faire sewing approach to seam allowances) I am happy with its cheerful colours. I think the next one will be more "perfect". Looks cute as can be on my white couch, if I do say so myself. (By the way, if you want one -- or one with different colourways, drop me a note. I'd love to make another one as a custom order. Might be fun!)
