The Great Sew Mama Sew Pillow Contest

pure pillow (4)

I decided to enter my Pure Hex Pillow in The Great SMS pillow contest

I was so frustrated and DONE with hexagons by the time I actually finished this quilt.

I wanted to toss all the extras and be done with it.

My inability to throw away any usable fabric saved me from that.

Instead, I unpicked the matching 1/2 hexes and re-sewed them into 6 scrappy hexagons.
Then I sewed them into an odd shaped table topper.
I  looked at it and thought
I wonder if I can sew all the edges together and make a pillow.

So I did.

It was quite the challenge.

I kept having to re-check the seams I was going to sew.
I didn't turn out how I thought it would, but I totally like it.

I don't think I'll make another one though...

Well, maybe if someone asked nicely.
really nicely.
and gave me chocolate.
