Scrap fabric pillow with a pop

Here is what I have been working on....


I was determined to only use my scrap pieces of fabric for this pillow, minus the back. 
The result was a pop of color and vibrancy.






I tried a few new things with some of the left over pieces. 
I don't know all the rules to piecing and applique, however this time I really wanted to use that to my advantage instead of feeling inferior or uncertain. Sometimes not having all the details allows for more experimentation.  I see how I can do a few things different next time. But overall I am pleased with it.  




Would love your input..what do you think?

Dear following along friends, I have decided when I hit the 299 mark for followers and readers that I would like to do another giveaway. I think I am about 10 away..so keep an eye out.  I have a real surprise this time. I am so honestly humbled that you all have joined up to make this journey here in the West Corner so much more full for me. Thank you.

In my west corner,
Becky
