TGIFF - Potter's Wheel Scraps Pillow

I've been playing along with the Potter's Wheel QAL hosted by Briar Hill Designs.  I'll be sewing on the binding this weekend.

There were good-sized scraps after cutting the curved pieces.  Briar Hill Designs offered suggestions on how to use the scraps, but I wasn't interested in cutting the scraps and then sewing them together.  So I just sewed the scraps together.

I was able to cut a 3.5-inch square and a 2.5-inch white square from each.

There were a few layout designs I considered before finally deciding on this one.  I did organic wavy lines in the background.

I had a fun decor weight fabric for the back.  Kona Water for the binding.

A little something to have on hand for a donation or a last-minute gift.

I'll share my baby quilt finish next week.
