Roundabout Quilt and matching pillows

If you've seen the latest issue of Quilty magazine, you may have seen my Roundabout Quilt!

I made this quilt with a fat quarter pack of Cotton and Steel plus 4 solids. It is a really fast and fun quilt to sew up! I was happy to have the quilt back in my house so we could use it on our couch! I snapped a few pictures when it arrived back home:

This is the layout for 1 block:

And here's how the blocks play together!

I had some corner triangle scraps left over from the quilt, so I sewed up a bunch of pillows! Each pillow has a different layout and a different quilting style to it, but they were all created from some half-square triangles:

For the pillow backs I used a metallic from the Cotton+Steel basics and some diagonal straight line quilting! Each pillow has navy blue piping and a colorful zipper (mostly because I didn't feel like going out to buy 4 matching zips!).
