The large motif on this pattern lent itself nicely to the windowpane effect.
The pillow class will be based on the book, Oh Sew Easy Pillows: 29 Projects for Stylish Living by Jean & Valori Wells.
I'm especially pleased with how the decorative stitching turned out on this one. It's metallic thread (which I normally wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole - not really my style) on silk dupioni. Instead of using a regular stitch which wouldn't really be thick enough to show up, I used a stitch on my machine that goes over each spot three times before moving on to the next stitch in the seam. It worked perfectly. I really need to remember to use this more for embellishment. It's a lot faster than hand embroidering when I don't have the time for handwork.
All three pillows have a basic overlap closure in back.
